03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

I have an 8212zl running on my core 5400's distrubution and 2910's on the edge.  I am running version k15.09 and W15.08 respectively.  Everything was running ok until a few weeks ago. I was getting ready to implement spanning tree and I turned on loop protect on all switches before turning on spanning tree.  I started noticing these 003311 messages and I thought spanning tree was the culprit but after sorting all the log messages I noticed these messages started happening 2 days prior to me turning spanning tree on.  

 

As I have investigated this problem I notice the ports that have printers attached running at 100mbps are the most common ports on each switch to report this error.  As a matter of fact about  95% of the ports that report this error are either running at 100mbps auto or they are set to 100-full through config as they are special medical devices.

 

When I do a show interface the drops for these ports are in the billions with a B.   These messages subsided over the weekend and then started happening again Monday morning.  About once per hour I will get an error message from several ports on every switch at this site.

 

I do have another campus that does not have this problem at all I use the same config at both sites but not drops at this location?

 

Does anyone have any ideas other than the "bad cabling" explination suggested on other posts.  I can swallow that cabling has gone bad on so many devices all at once.

 

Why are these drops only happening once every hour? And Like clock work they propigate through my netowrk???

Re: 03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

I just go a reply on a seperate post that Microsoft load balancer could be causing the problem.  During my investigation I noticed that the IP for the load balancer is always the no 1 talker on every port at this site.  Even when the attached device shouldn't be talking to the load balancer.  This load balancer is used for remote applications only not for local traffic.  Do I need to do something with multi-cast traffic?

Re: 03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

If you are running the load balancer in multicast mode, then the traffic is likely to be flooded to all ports by default. And certainly a high multicast/broadcast load would be exactly the sort of thing that would cause drops on the slower ports.

 

Microsoft NLB is a bit wierd; I can't do more than suggest that you search for 'microsoft nlb + procurve' and hope the results make some sort of sense to you. Unfortunately, this is a 'it works OK with Cisco' kind of thing.

Re: 03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

Thanks Richard.  Just for general information I am posting the link "sunshinedays" shared with me.  This seems to explain everything very clearly.

Re: 03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

Well there goes that theory.  We removed the load balancer last night and I'm still getting High Collision or Drop rate log entries accross my network. It is the same 2-4 ports on various switches (not all) they come in about once an hour.  When I do a show interface the drops can be in the billions.  I'm not seeing any negative impact on my network but these just started populating one day.

 

Most of the ports are 100Mbps but not all.  They are printers but there are some older workstations running 1Gbps also.  

 

I was in the process of turning on loop-protect and configuring spaning tree when I noticed these messages.  I thought it was spanning tree but looking further into the problem I noticed that the messages started about 4 days prior to me flipping the switch.

 

Now I did turn on loop-protect on every non uplink port on every switch.  Would loop-protect cause these drops???  Should I worry about all of these messages every hour?

Re: 03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

Hello,

I have a lot of 2510 on the edges and I see the same error message. I never cared to found the root cause. I have the same symptom the log message only happens on devices that have 100 Mbit or less links. But in order to find the culprit, it should be very easy to track it down: Take a Windows or Linux PC on a 10/100 Mbit port and let tcpdump or wireshark running, wait until the log message pops up again and than look at the pcap what kind of packets you saw going through while it happened. I assume that it is a false positive but if you want to go forward and need some help you can contact me at thomas at glanzmann dot de.

Re: 03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

With a 2910, you also have the option of running an Sflow monitor. That might show at a look what the suspects are, although it comes to pretty much the same thing as using Wireshark.

Re: 03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

So I disabled loop-protect on my core 8212 switch and I have not seen one of these messages on any of my switches since that change.  The ports that were listed as having high collisions or drop rates are null now.  The tx-drop counter has not changed in 6 days.

 

Also before this change my spanning tree topology changes were in the thousands ... and I would never go past say 70 minutes in the "time since last change".  Now the changes have stopped and I am at 6 days since last change.

 

During my testing the bpdu-protect always caught my intentional loops before loop-protect.  Loop protect would only catch the loop if bpdu-protect was not enabled and only if I created the loop hot.  If I looped a small switch and then connected the switch to a port on my test switch loop-protect would never see the loop and a broadcast storm would occur.

 

Anyway now that  I have turned off loop-protect on the root I have had no other high collisions or drop rates log entries on any switch.

Re: 03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

I had the same problem on 2510 series, and now see the same at brand new 2530's with latest firmware. And also only 100Mb ports.

Don't understand  - is it an "eternal" bug in Procurve switches or is it a real problem ? The only HP could advise is "change the cables". Seems to be there is no "loop protection" in 2530, what else could I try ?

Re: 03311 High Collisions or Drop rate - All switches

KKpro,

The only other think I can think of when I had a similar problem was I found some servers with multicasting enabled but no config on the switch.  I was getting execissive collisions hourly.  When we disabled this function because MS implementation was not compatible with HP Procurve the problem went away.

 

I had to sniff the traffic with wire shark to identify the offending server and correct the problem.

 

Good Luck
