Probe Calculates More Than 100 % for Error and Discarded Packets
Symptom
:
The probe is unable to provide a correct value for the current percentage of interface errors. This happens when you enable the monitoring of errors and discarded packets.
Solution
:
Do the following:
  1. Go to the 
    Raw Configuration
     interface of the interface_traffic probe.
  2. Set the value of the 
    incerrdistototal
     key as 
    1
    Default: 0
  3. Restart the probe.
When the value of this key is set as
1
, the error and discarded packets are added to the total packets. The probe is now able to calculate the correct value for current percentage of interface errors.
