Switches are dropping traffic
Posted on 2008-10-08
I have a set of 3 3com Super Stack switchs model 3870. They are configured as a single stack. my issue is that they seem to dropping traffic all of a sudden. we have been having an issue with our websites losing connections to the sql server. If a ping anything on our network with the -t option it will be fine for a while and all of a sudden will drop a bunch of packets, and then it is fine for a while.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I could diagnos this problem? I updated the switches to the latest firmware. it hasn't made any difference.
I am wondering if one of my switches might be going bad? if so how do I figure out which one?
