Interface Errors report reveals packet discard count (specially due to error) for network interfaces associated with each device or device group you specify. Packets can be routinely discarded due to policy, hardware faults, and network outages. Interface Errors reports reveal an error-specific fraction of the total packet discard count reported in the Interface Discards report. At the network interface, discards due to error typically occur when a CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) or packet header inspection returns unexpected results.
To display additional measurements, click a column heading () for column selection (). You can also include:
Choose Device. Choose one or more host devices you want Interface Errors measurements for.
Choose time constraints. (,) Choose times for the Interface Errors. (For recently observed measurements, select Last Polled from the Date Range drop down list.)
