How to check whether Cisco 3620 router is dropping packets

Hi Guys,

Can someone let me know how i would go about identifying whether my cisco 3620 router is dropping packets?

Is there a command i can run to look at the logs etc?

Regards

Biggie

Dropped packets aren't "logged", but they are counted.

"sh int | i err" should jump to the specifics, or just go through "sh int" to see all of the counters per interface.

To be more clear, "show inteface" will give you all sorts of statistics about packet drops (sh int is an abbreviation which works just as well). But what really matters is whether the numbers are incrementing. There are input and output buffers, and the reason for drops depends where you see the drops. So first look at the counters, check again later, and report back with the output if you think there's a problem.
