Cisco command to check for packet loss / errors?

Hi, one of our networks is used for a bespoke application which is underperforming and we have been advised that the network has issues.
I can run a continuous ping to any device on that network with a -l 1500 and I don't drop any packets.
I would like to be able to run a command on our Cisco 2960 and 3560 switches that will show if there are lots of errors / data loss etc that I can copy and paste to a word doc.
please can you advise command to run and also what values you would consider to be unacceptable.
kind regards,
Rick

In interface config mode use the "load interval (seconds)" command.  But that will just affect the rate calculations.

I would "clear counters" on the interface and then monitor for errors.

"show interface "

Bottom 10 lines or so gives you information on bad packets, etc.

Many thanks for that, is there anyway I can increase the duration to get more than the 5 minute input and output that it displays?
