I have a verizon TLS circuit that is a PTP to another location. We replicate data from our office to the other location so the link is pretty much all data going from location A to location B.
The line is always around 50% utilization but i am getting a good amount of drops. Any Suggestions?
Below is a show int about a min after i cleared counters and the line never was above 50% utilization
