5406zl dropping frames

When I telnet into my 5406zl all the active ports drop frames, the same amount each time. I can clear the counters, and everything seems to be fine, but when I login through telnet it drops the frames again. Is this a buffer problem, or some other funky thing.

Re: 5406zl dropping frames

Are these dropped frames incrementing or are they always the same value? If they are the same value, what is it?

When you clear counters through telnet it is only for that session only. To properly clear the counters the switch needs to be rebooted.

Re: 5406zl dropping frames

They are always the same value, and some port are 33,XXX drops and others 164,XXX, but always the same. I'll clear the statistics and reboot tonight. I recently had a loop in the network, which probably caused the frame drops.
