RX packets experienced errors-paloaltonetworks-panos
Indeni tracks the number of packets that had issues and alerts if the ratio is too high.
Packet errors usually occur when there is a mismatch in the speed and duplex settings on two sides of a cable, or a damaged cable.
How does this work?
This script logs into the Palo Alto Networks device using SSH and retrieves the output of the “show system state filter sys.s1.p*.detail” command. The output includes the interface related information and statistics.
Why is this important?
Capture the counter of interface Receive Errors that prevented packets from being delivered to a higher-layer protocol. If this counter increases an alarm will be raised.
Without Indeni how would you find this?
It is possible to poll this data through ssh and API. SNMP provides a global counter “receive discarded” " ifInErrors .126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1.14" which is the sum of mac_rcv_error and rcv_fifo_overrun
