Input Errors

The following paragraphs explain the counters that are not obvious:

    • Errors
      Sum of the incoming frame aborts and FCS errors.

    • Policed Discards
      Frames that the incoming packet match code discarded because they were not recognized or of interest. Usually, this field reports protocols that the JUNOS software does not handle, such as CDP.

    • L3 incompletes
      This counter is incremented when the incoming packet fails Layer 3 (usually IPv4) sanity checks of the header. For example, a frame with less than 20 bytes of available IP header would be discarded and this counter would be incremented.

    • L2 channel errors
      This counter increments when the software could not find a valid logical interface (that is, something like t3-1/2/3.0) for an incoming frame.

    • L2 mismatch timeouts
      Count of malformed or short packets that cause the incoming packet handler to discard the frame as unreadable.

    • SRAM errors
      The counter increments when a hardware error has occurred in the SRAM on the PIC. The value in this field should always be 0. If it increments, the PIC is broken.

    • HS link CRC errors
      Count of errors on the high-speed links between the ASICs responsible for handling the router interfaces.

Output Errors

    • Carrier transitions
      Number of times the interface has gone from down to up. This number should not increment quickly, increasing, for example, only when the cable is unplugged or the far end system is powered down and up. If it does increment quickly (perhaps, 1 every 10 seconds), then something is broken check the cable, the far end system, or the PIC.

    • Errors
      Sum of the outgoing frame aborts and FCS errors.

    • Drops
      Number of packets dropped by the output queue of the I/O Manager ASIC. If the interface is saturated, this number increment once for every packet that is dropped by the ASIC's RED mechanism.

    • Aged packets
      Number of packets that remained in shared packet SDRAM for so long that the system automatically purged them. The value in this field should never increment. If it does, it is most likely a software bug or possible broken hardware.

Output Field Definitions

Active alarms and Active defects T3 media-specific defects that can render the interface unable to pass packets. When a defect persists for a certain amount of time, it is promoted to an alarm. Based on the router configuration, an alarm can ring the red or yellow alarm bell on the router, or the red or yellow alarm LED on the craft interface.

Addresses

Addresses associated with the logical interface.

Broadcast The IP address for the broadcast of this interface.

Clocking

Reference clock source.

CRC

Frame checksum on the interface (either 16 or 32).

Destination

IP address of the remote side of the connection.

Device Flags

Specific information about the physical device. Possible values are described in Device Flags Field.

DLCI

If Frame Relay encapsulation is configured, the DLCI number of the logical interface.

DS3 media

Counts of T3 media-specific errors.

DSU configuration

Information about the DSU configuration. The last three lines (Bit count, Error bit count, and LOS information) are displayed only if a BERT test has ever been run on the interface.

Enabled

State of the interface. Possible values are described in Enabled Field.

Encapsulation

Encapsulation on the logical interface.

HDLC configuration

Information about the HDLC configuration.

Input rate, Output rate

The rate of bits and packets received and transmitted on the interface.

Interface Flags

Specific information about the interface. Possible values are described in Interface Flags Field.

Interface index

Physical interface's index number, which reflects its initialization sequence.

Link flags

Specific information about the links.

Link level type

Encapsulation being used on the physical interface.

Local

IP address of the logical interface.

Local statistics

Statistics for traffic received from and transmitted to the Routing Engine. When a burst of traffic is received, the value in the output packet rate field might briefly exceed the peak cell rate. It takes a while (generally, less than 1 second) for this counter to stabilize.

Logical interface, Index, SNMP ifIndex

Name of the logical interface, the logical interface's index number (which reflects its initialization sequence), and the logical interface's SNMP interface index number.

Loopback

Whether loopback is enabled and the type of loopback (local or remote).

Mode

Indicates whether or not C-bit parity mode is enabled.

MTU

MTU size on the physical interface.

PFE configuration

Information about how the Packet Forwarding Engine is configured.

Physical Interface

Name of the physical interface.

Protocol

Protocol running on the logical interface.

SNMP ifIndex

SNMP index number for the interface.

Speed

Speed at which the interface is running.

Statistics Last Cleared

Time when the statistics for the interface were last zeroed.

Traffic Statistics

Number and rate of bytes and packets received and transmitted on the physical interface.

Transit statistics

Statistics for traffic transiting the router. When a burst of traffic is received, the value in the output packet rate field might briefly exceed the peak cell rate. It takes a while (generally, less than 1 second) for this counter to stabilize.
