I have HP Procurve 3500yl POE swithes and one of the switch showing following:
fault-finder bad-driver sensitivity high
fault-finder bad-transceiver sensitivity high
fault-finder bad-cable sensitivity high
fault-finder too-long-cable sensitivity high
fault-finder over-bandwidth sensitivity high
fault-finder broadcast-storm sensitivity high
fault-finder loss-of-link sensitivity high
fault-finder duplex-mismatch-hdx sensitivity high
fault-finder duplex-mismatch-fdx sensitivity high
power-over-ethernet pre-std-detect

Are those errors or is it on configuration? Not sure what it is. Any suggestion helps..Thanks

These are the command/config options.
You set most to high, so when the switch detects something, it will let you know. Margins to react are set to high sensitivity, meaning you will get more messages more often than if you set it to low.

Kimputer,  so it is setting to report, but i don't see setup where it send it too.
snmp-server host community "public" is on config file so i guess it is not going to report anywhere. Thanks

It might not always report if there's no function for that. In that case, it's only logged in its own log files.
