Re: dropped packets in Perfmonitor

As a note, Mbps isn't anywhere near the the be-all and end-all of
measuring effort. Take a look at the avg packet size, number of
sessions, protocol mix, fragments, etc.

I would take Joel up on his offer to look at your perfmon output, he
may spot something else related.

Hi,

It seems that when our Mbit per second increase, dropped packets decrease
and when Mbit per second decrease we have a higher rate of dropped packets?

Is there something we can tune to keep the dropped packets at 1% or less?


Thanks,
Larry
