Cisco Switching/Routing :: Giving Out Discard Error On 3750E
Apr 4, 2011
We're seeing "OutDiscard" error on a LAN switch connected to newly migrated Cisco IP phones. All the other error counters are clean except for the OutDiscard. (please see attached "show int count err" output.) [URL].
According to the link above, the common cause of such discards can be to free up buffer space.(Am I seeing a switch buffer issue?) How to identify/resolve the cause of the OutDiscard.The switch is 3750-E running c3750e-universalk9-mz.122-44.SE6.bin
I have 2 datacenters running same equipement (two Nexu 5596 with FEX).I just took a look at the log just to see if everything is ok and I saw that I have the same error message (a lot of times) at both location :
%SYSMGR-FEX100-5-HEARTBEAT_LOSS: Service "satctrl" heartbeat loss 2 ,max 7,I though it was a problem with my peerklink-keepalive connection but I see the word FEX ....so i'm not sure...
Note that at both locations, my Nexus are connected back to back through the management port using transceivers. So it's a copper cable from the first nexus, going into a transceiver, going to another transceiver in fiber and then back to copper to the other nexus.
we have a core switch 4507RE at the data center and 2 departments that connect to it via 10Gig fiber using X2-LRM modules. Each department has a 3 switch stack and both locations are identical w.r.t type and setup scenario.the stack comprises of 1 x 3750E and 2 x 3750G . uplink is from X2 port tengig3/0/1 from the 3750E switch.
All of a sudden dept B started facing problem , where the ping would break and throughput comes around 6 - 7 mbps from that dept to the server behind the core switch. we also noted CRC error on both sides preodically.
we replaced the multimode fiber patch cords, re did the splicing , which stopped the CRC errors to appear.now since morning the uplink port on the 3750E (3/0/1) would suddenly be in "down" state with (err-disabled) as the status when i run sh int ten 3/0/1
and i can also see CRC errors and input errors on the same interface.. if i do shut / no shut .. the port is up and active again.. but this has happned 3 times today.the core swith side is still OK and no CRC / input / output errors are seen..
now on the 3750E i have swapped the 10gig module from 3/0/1 to 3/0/2 . the port is still up but i can see 400 CRC and 500 Input errrors.the module is also OK as i had replaced it with dept 1's module.
I have 2 NX4001. Each one has an uplink to a 5K. There is no VPC between the 4K and the 5K. The 5K are VPC enabled.There is a large number on input discards on the 4001 interfaces connected to the 5K and is incrementing.I have a server with smartfailover that is flapping and I think the input discard might be the culprit.what is the cause on input discard. Note: All NXOS to the latest.
I have two 3560G 24 port switches. Each of them connects to some 3560G or 2950 switches. Trunks between 3560G are set as 1000/full. Trunks between 3560G and 2950 are set as 100/full. show int status also shows the interface negotiation is 100/full for trunks between 3560G and 2950. The issue is I keep getting outdiscard errors in trunks between 3560G and 2950. At 2950 switches, I see Recv-errors too. I checked all the trunks traffic. They are totally not high. Only serveal mbps. Most time even lower than 1mbps.
I googled this kind of issue online. I see it could be possibly caused by high volume traffic higher than the capacity. But it appears the traffic there is not high enough to cause this kind of issue. Is there any possiblity that could cause this problem?
The below is 3560G trunk configuration for 2950 switch

I need to use cisco 3750E switch on core. I want to know whether BGP is supported on this model or not?Currently i have c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE/c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE.bin" preinstalled. and i checked BGP is not supported on this IOS image.
Quick question here. Using 3750E series switches with multiple VLANS configured. These switches serve as our 'core'. I have SVIs configured for the different VLANs and add inbound ACLs in each of the SVIs to control traffic between VLANS. This switch also terminates a P2P Ethernet link which connects to our Colo facility. The port used for this is configured as an L3 port. I noticed today that I was able to send traffic across this L3 link that I thought should have been blocked by an ACL I had in place but it wasn't. So the traffic flowed from a port in say VLAN 20 across this L3 link (assigned with an IP address). Would this traffic flow not cause traffic to be checked against an ACL applied in the inbound direction on the SVI of VLAN 20 (int vlan 20)? Traffic does get checked when routing between SVIs. Why would it not get checked when routing between SVI and L3 interface?
I am in the process of upgrading our network switches and wondering if the .lic file will work with the new software or if I have to rehost for the move to 15.0. Its a remote site and I would like to get some solid info before I pull the trigger.
Also which IOS should I be upgrading to?
c3750e-ipbasek9-mz.150-2.SE.bin or c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE.bin
I am seeing on my 3750E series switches (WS-C3750E-48TD). I have multiple VLANs configured on here, one which is used as a 'workstation' VLAN. I have an inbound ACL applied to the VLAN interface *(int vlan 50 to be exact). This list is admittedly long at roughly 6000 ACE's. Now I just recently installed these switches as they replaced some 4507R switches which we moved to our new centralized DC. Here is the issue I am having. This same ACL was applied to the same VLAN interface on the 4507s when they were doing the work of the 3750s. What I used to be able to do was actually edit the ACL by removing it with no ip access-list extended WS-In and then followed up by the ip access-list extended WS-In ......and the lines I wanted in the ACL. I know I could use the line numbers to edit the ACL but this worked OK for me. When I would do this on the 4507R, the ACL was still applied to the interface but traffic never seemed affected by the removal and re-adding of the ACL. I did this by copying and pasting the ACL into a terminal window. It seemed as though on the 4507 the ACL was not compiled until the entire thing was in loaded in and therefore traffic was not processed by the ACL until the load was done
I have a 3750E stackable swtch and I need to configure neflow on it. Are there any IOS versions that support netflow on the 3750E? Is there any possible to configure netflow on a 3750E? I do not see any netflow commands available on the switch?
I have a RVS4000 connected to my cable modem which I use as my gateway, the IP address of the RVS is 192.168.3.254
I have a 2811 with 3 subinterfaces of which I can ping all of them from my PC which at the minute is in VLAN 1, the only network that can connect to the outside world is VLAN 1, how can I enable the other 2 vlans to connect to the internet?
My set-up details are
interface FastEthernet0/0.1 description *** Data Network*** encapsulation dot1Q 1 native
After I added the 3rd 3750E to my stack on Sunday I can no longer save my configs with 'copy run start' or 'write mem':
#copy running-config startup-config Destination filename [startup-config]? Building configuration... nv_done: unable to open "flash:/config.text.new" nv_done: unable to open "flash:/private-config.text.new" nv_done: unable to open "flash:/multiple-fs.new"[OK]
We tested a QoS in a Cisco 3750E, IOS: 12.2(58)SE2.Voice traffice in the correct Q without any problem, but all the others traffic the Defualt Q (0), tried to capture the traffic and tcp/udp port are correct.Any thing wrong with my ACL or DSCP - CoS?? ( that ACL works fin on 4500 and 6500) [code]
I am not able to find the exact bug for Cisco 3750E stack - Debug Exception (Could be NULL pointer dereference) Exception (0x2000) error. Closest i can find is CSCsa72400 which only affects ver 12.2(20)SE4.All the stacks (3 switches) are running 12.2(50)SE3, It appears that the switch 1 crashed and reloaded. My hunch is its software but i cant find any related bugs. It could be hardware issue as well ?
I have a device which will be sending voice and data packets and is able to mark the packets with DSCP values. Voice, 18 and Data 42.If this was a straight through network, I'd be clear on how to handle this, but.....I will be putting this traffic into a VLAN to isolate it from some other traffic on the network. What is the best way to prioritize this traffic inside the VLAN? Will the Cisco switch look at and respect the DSCP values inside the VLAN and prioritize accordingly inside the VLAN? Or, do I need to do some sort of DSCP to 802.1p mapping? Another option I would be fine with would be mapping the DSCP values for voice and data to two different VLANs and then giving the voice VLAN priority over the data VLAN .... I'm using 3750E switches.
9x3750E stacked switch (WS-C3750E-48PD-SF0) (15.0(1)SE2 C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M) 2x10Gbe uplinks from EMC NAS
At a basic level, we have found that the 10Gbe uplinks have slow read performance with or without a port-channel configured (2-3 minutes for a 700MB file to desktop from the NAS) We switched back to testing a 1Gbe and the read speed is normal. Another anomaly is Win7 / 2008 machines read speed is fine from the NAS while the 10Gbe uplinks are in production?!
Write speed is great on 10Gbe. Only read speed is affected!! the switch is not reporting anything abnormal. We looked at SMB/SMB2 as another possible cause...
mls qos is enabled on the switch but not sure if this is affecting performance.
Is the ANY config that I need to carry out on the interfaces to get the read speed working as it should for both Win7 and WinXP. (MTU is 1500 throughout the enterprise, NAS included).
I have installed and configured 2 new WS-3750E-24TD in the last 30 days, that have software version 12.5(50)SE2-universalk9, on our flat Development LAN (currently 7 existing WS-3750E-24TD with 12.5(35)SE2-universal)The new switches have shutdown, 1 has shutdown twice and I just had the other one shutdown on the weekend, all the status lights on the left are lit up but no port lights are on, I am not able to console in to the switch all I can do is cycle power. I am planning on upgrading all switches to the latest software release universalk9-mz.150-1SE
could this problem be a version incompatibillity between the switches?
According to the following Cisco webpage, cross-stack 10-Gigabit EtherChannel is possible on the 3750 with up to two 10-Gigabit modules, using LACP: url...However, the webpage doesn't confirm if this functionality is restricted to a particular 3750 model, such as 3750E, or if it applies to all models. It also doesn't specify any particular IOS feature set. I've tried Cisco Software Advisor but it doesn't list this feature on either the 3750E or 3750-X. This is possible on the 2960-S switches (i.e. cross-stack 10gig EtherChannel)?
