Taken from the above link:

RUNTS
Number of packets that are discarded because they are smaller than the medium's minimum packet size. For instance, any Ethernet packet that is less than 64 bytes is considered a runt.

GIANTS
Number of packets that are discarded because they exceed the medium's maximum packet size. For example, any Ethernet packet that is greater than 1,518 bytes is considered a giant.

THROTTLES
Number of times the receiver on the port was disabled, possibly due to buffer or processor overload.
