what does these values mean snmpEtherStatsRXNoErrors and snmpEtherStatsTXNoErrors ?



Trying to rule out the a file transfer througputput issue,  looking at the interface stats,


1.  Is there a technote explain these values mean?

2.  What are these values mean snmpEtherStatsRXNoErrors and snmpEtherStatsTXNoErrors ?

1) MIB information can be found HERE, which further links to more detailed MIB documentation.

2) Its dispalying the Transmit and Receive error counters.

@BPry  Thanks!  


I am getting complaint about slow transfer, trying to start from L1 and move up, checking switch ports for errors.  The kb on how to check for crc errors on an interface  is not updated with the newer 5200 platform.  


Do I need to worry about those two counters ( snmpEtherStatsRXNoErrors and snmpEtherStatsTXNoErrors ) are iincrementing?  

L4 Transporter

I got some information back from TAC,  


The output from show system state filter-pretty sys.s1.p??  (or you are replace with sys.s1.*, that will show all the interfaces on slot1, if you are using chassis, change from s1 to sX, X is the slot that you want to check)


snmpEtherStatsRXNoErrors , snmpEtherStatsTXNoErrors  those counters were "success counters" not indicative of any sort of issue on the device/interface.   I can see if you want to count the errors in %, you can use snmpIfInErrors/(snmpEtherStatsRXNoErrors+snmpEtherStatsTXNoErrors) 


This is what I found on the devices that I have acceess to,


Here is one example that interface has FCSErrors,  CRCAlignErrors,

It maybe better to just match for error and filter out those NoErrrors.    and see if those counters are increaasing over time..
