7600-SIP-400 high error rate

7600-SIP-400 high error rate

7600-SIP-400 high error rate

Hi All

I hope someone can point me in the right direction,

We have a 7606 that is running IOS 15.1, the unit has an SPA and SIP-400 card,
SPA-5X1GE-V2 and 7600-SIP-400

We have replaced the SFP's and the fibre lead, and used different ports on the SIP-400, This port plugs into a 6509, the port on the 6509 shows no errors at all, but as you can see from the below we are seeing excessive input errors and drops.

What we have found is that there are no errors when the interface runs below 10000 packets per second, there are drops though, but once the interface hits 10000+ pps the errors rack up, sometimes as many as 2000+ at a time, what also seems to happen when looking at the interface with a 30 second load-interval is that once it starts showing errors the pps rate drops below 10000 and for a minute or so there are no errors while the pps rate climbs, once its on 10000+ the errors are back.

I have adjusted the input queue but we never actually see anything in the input queue so it is back at the default of 75

The MTU on both sides is 1500, I have tried 9000 but there is no difference in the errors, both sides are set to auto negotiate and both seem to negotiate at 1000/full I see no collisions etc as would be expected if the negotiation was off.
