Re: show statistics Ethernet, how useful is this info?

I would start by upgrading the firmware on the switches to the latest A27 PC6200v3.3.3.3 released 4/3/2012.  Even if there may not be a specific fix listed in the firmware update the firmware on the switch can get degraded/corrupt just like any other software.

Download link:

www.dell.com/.../DriverFileFormats

That is some good information from the show command.  It would be helpful if you could respond with a summary of what issues you are currently having.  Without any baseline or background information it is hard to respond with an appropriate response.

Hope this helps,

Keep us updated if you can.
