investigate ethernet errors: asw2-a5-eqiad port xe-0/0/36
Closed, ResolvedPublic


asw2-a5-eqiad xe-0/0/36 has some input errors. It's part of ae0, which is the 4-port aggregate back to asw-a-eqiad, and is the only one of the 4 showing the errors. None of the 4 links (or the ae) is showing errors on the other side at asw-a-eqiad. The errors have been there since at least Sep 2013 in librenms's history.

This is possibly related to the pattern of inter-row elevated nutcracker timeout rates shown in:

I've disabled the link (1/4 from aggregate) on both sides:

bblack@asw2-a5-eqiad# show|compare
[edit interfaces xe-0/0/36]
+   disable;

bblack@asw2-a5-eqiad# commit
bblack@asw-a-eqiad# show|compare
[edit interfaces xe-6/1/0]
+   disable;

bblack@asw-a-eqiad# commit

librenms graphs show ae0 errors have dropped back to zero.
Leaving this ticket open still to resolve the actual link issue and turn it back on.

faidon set Security to None.

I replaced the fiber. Let's turn it up and see if it's any better. Next step would be to replace optics

I turned it up, but it seems there is no link on it now:

xe-0/0/36       up    down Core: << asw-a-eqiad:xe-6/1/0 {#2169}

swapped both sfp's and the fiber
