Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone knows if all of the following errors would lead to packet drops/discards.

Runts
Giants
Framing Errors
Overrun Errors
Abort Errors

Also, are there any types of interface errors that don't lead to packet drops/discards?

So if all interface errors lead to packet drops/discards, I may not have to poll for multiple OIDs for these errors, but instead just poll for packet drops/discards.
 
Any insight would be appreciated.
 
Thanks,
 
David

Runts - Number of packets discarded because they are smaller than the medium's minimum packet size.
Giants - Number of packets that are discarded because they exceed the medium's maximum packet size.
Frame - Number of packets received incorrectly having a CRC error and a noninteger number of octets.
Overrun - Number of times the serial receiver hardware was unable to hand received data to a hardware buffer because the input rate exceeded the receiver's ability to handle the data.
Abort - Number of packets whose receipt was aborted.

I think you can pull input and output errors as they sum up all errors that have occurred.
