What's the meaning of port.tx_dropped_link_down for ethtool counter for intel XL710-QDA2

Hi 

I am using Intel XL710 for SRIOV.

I am seeing the ethtool  counter of port.tx_dropped_link_down is increasing and yesterday the server got link flap for several times.

7/6   port.tx_dropped_link_down: 10601
7/9 port.tx_dropped_link_down: 18021

I am wondering if there is a relationship between counter  port.tx_dropped_link_down and link down.

Do someone knows the meaning of port.tx_dropped_link_down?

I didn't find any valid information about this

 

Thank you
