I saw port_rx dropped on the XXV710-DA2 OCP NIC card when I execute iperf. But there is no the other errors and rx/tx dropped reported.
The NVM version is v6.8 I used and attachment is the logs.
My questions are :
What is "port_rx dropped" meaning?
What`s the impact when I see the port_rx dropped ?
Are there any suggestions for me to debugging?
Thanks for your reply. I will try to update the drvier and get back to you.
BTW, what`s the difference between "port_rx dropped" and "rx_dropped" ?
Thanks Mikel. It says something is not fast enough in the slot/memory/system. But I try to use another similar spec NIC card (another vendor) and keep the system configuration the same. I don`t see the port.ex_dropped. If it is relative to my system. I expect to see the port.ex_dropped also. It`s confused me.
I had updated my Intel NIC card FW to the latest firmware file. The result is the same. I also did some tests to isolate this issue .
Do you any suggestion for next step ?
