CLI question - What's the difference between: "receive errors" and "receive incoming errors"

L1 Bithead

Hi There,

 

We haev aggrgate interface called ae2, and we have some problems with the traffic related to this interface

 

so we run the commnand show interface ae2

and show interface ethernet1/3 (which is one of the interfaces inside ae2)

(the ouput is down)

 

can someone please tell me the difference between: "receive errors" and "receive incoming errors"?

 

you can see that under the ae2 interface its shows as "receive errors"

and under the physical interface  its shows as "receive incoming errors"

 

i think that "receive incoming errors" is something the was first shows in 7.0.1

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Please check this discussion. A lot of useful info:

 

https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/Featured-Articles/DotW-Packet-Drops-in-LAN-Interface/ta-p/78798

 

Thx,

Myky

 

Thanks Myky,

 

useful info indeed,

but actually i know how to look for the source of the problem and the cause

doing it with "counter global" with filters and "delta yes" and so on...

 

but in all this info and links i still didnt found as answer for what is the difference between "receive errors" and "receive incoming"

 

Thanks,

Reshef

Hello Reshef,

 

I realised we had similar case. Output from our interface ( on the time when we had bad SFP):

 

palo@PA-5050> show interface ethernet1/18

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: ethernet1/18, ID: 33
Link status:
Runtime link speed/duplex/state: 1000/full/up
Configured link speed/duplex/state: auto/auto/auto ....
Hardware interface counters read from CPU:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
bytes received 110063252752
bytes transmitted 475283731808
packets received 520650575
packets transmitted 420811658
receive incoming errors 43203516
receive discarded 0
receive errors 0
packets dropped 0

 

We had a bad SFP on that interface. As soon as we replaced it we  stopped receiving any incoming errors. I don't know really if this is relevant to you case but just some more info on this.

 

Hardware "receive errors" described here:

Thx,

Myky

Hey Myky,

 

Thanks again.

 

so first, interesting, i will check the issue with the sfp with that customer.

who knows 🙂

 

but yet, i didnt found an answer,

because the post you gave me, from 2013, and back than there was no "receive incoming errors"

only  "receive errors" .

i think it shows first in 7.0.

so there is no reference in that post to "receive incoming errors"

not in the post and not in the comments below.

 

and for some reason the customer insist of knowing what's the difference.

 

Thanks,

Reshef

 

Cannot answer what exactly does it mean but checking PA that running 6.1.7 PAN-OS still can see this incoming errors :
