Re: Bad Rx Char

Let's guess about the background of this question ... related to LAN, FC or what?

Bad signals in general may have bad cables, connectors, sender or receiver modules as a reason.

Hope this helps!

Re: Bad Rx Char

What you mean by "some"? "some" could be pretty normal if this is a low value.

Hope this helps!

I just notice that these Bad Rx Char errour did not change after one hour of monitoring it could have been there before.

Are you aware if there is any documentation available that could tell me what is these errors rate are normal?

Re: Bad Rx Char

I've attached a text doc and also included it's url in case. Usually Bad Rx Char is hardware related and fixed by replacing the fibre cable. If you have alcohol and a paper towel you can also try cleaning the ends. I was taugth to wet the paper towel, followed by 6 or so veritcal swipes and 6 or so horizonal swipes. Also, the numbers given in this example are 7,500 and up.
