Re: MIB for monitoring of packet loss on PowerConnect

I don't know that there is one specific OID that will monitor all dropped packets. But i found a few that will monitor in and out errors and discards.

Hope these help.

Hi Daniel,

If I were to write a script to calculate the packet loss percentage, which counters are relevant to this calculation?

That is going to depend on why the packet loss is occurring. If you write your script to monitor in and out packet loss because of errors, there may still be packet loss without errors. I think to be most accurate you want to monitor all possible packet loss.
