TX packets experienced collisions-fortinet-FortiOS

Vendor: fortinet

OS: FortiOS

Description:
Indeni tracks the number of packets that had issues and alerts if the ratio is too high.

Remediation Steps:
Packet collisions usually occur when there is a mismatch in duplex settings on two sides of a cable.

  |1. Run "diag hardware deviceinfo nic <interface>" command to display a list of hardware related error names and values. Review  the next link for more details: http://help.fortinet.com/fos50hlp/54/Content/FortiOS/fortigate-toubleshooting-54/troubleshooting_tools.htm
  |2. Run command "fnsysctl cat /proc/net/dev" to get a summary of the interface statistics.
  |3. Check for speed and duplex mismatch in the interface settings on both sides of a cable, and check for a damaged cable. Review the next link for more info: http://kb.fortinet.com/kb/documentLink.do?externalID=10653

How does this work?
This script logs into the FortiGate using SSH and retrieves the output of the “fnsysctl ifconfig” FortiOS hidden command. The output includes all the interface related information and statistics.

Why is this important?
Capture the interface transimit collisions counter and is valid for half duplex mode. High value of collision packets may have impact to the traffic utilization (retransmission for TCP apps) and to the performance of the applications.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An admin would need to log into the Fortinet firewall and manually review the interface statistics.

    network-interface-rx-overruns:

            Capture the interface Receive overruns counter. High value of overruns packets may have impact to the traffic
            utilization (retransmission for TCP apps) and to the performance of the applications. In a small number of
            cases, the overrun counter may be incremented because of a software defect. However, in the majority of cases,
            it indicates that the receiving capability of the interface was exceeded. Nothing can be done on the device that
            reports overruns. If possible, the rate that frames are coming should be controlled at the remote end of the
            connection. Check the link below for more information about troubleshooting network interface problems:
