Access Point Output Errors

By yuemo ·

We are using Cisco Access Points. Just curious how many output errors are too much. Following are from one of our APs.

Receive/Transmit Statistics
Receive Transmit
5 Min Input Rate (bits/sec) 29000 5 Min Output Rate (bits/sec) 87000
5 Min Input Rate (packets/sec) 5 5 Min Output Rate (packets/sec) 9
Time Since Last Input 00:00:00 Time Since Last Output 00:00:00
Total Packets Input 19315301 Total Packets Output 46564730
Total Bytes Input 904656401 Total Bytes Output 4109506114

Error Statistics
Receive Transmit

Total Input Errors 0 Total Output Errors 90238
Throttles 0 Last Output Hang never
The big question for us is that is the number of "Total Output Errors" normal compared to the "Total Packets Output"? It may be a wrong comparison? (Time frame may be an important factor, we did not clear the counts, so the number could be for the last half year or so.)

Any ideas, comments?

Well, that's an extremely small percentage of the total packets (I'm assuming they mean packets for the errors; if they mean bytes it's almost non-existant as a percentage).

If you'rereally worried about it, I'd advise resetting the count. After that, log it for a while; daily or weekly is up to you. Once you have the log you'll have a much better idea of what's going on.

Definitely I will do the reset.

If we do cal "total output errors"/"total packets output", the ratio is about 0.1%-0.5% (including other I did not put here).
