TX packets experienced errors-checkpoint-ipso

Vendor: checkpoint

OS: ipso

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

Remediation Steps:
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?
The amount of transmit errors for the interface is retrieved by running “netstat -idb”.

Why is this important?
Transmit errors on an interface could indicate a problem.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An administrator could login and manually check interface configuration, or use SNMP.

    network-interface-state:
        why: |
            Interfaces in the "down" state could result in downtime or reduced redundancy.
        how: |
            The state of the interface is retrieved by running "ifconfig -a".
        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-admin-state:
        why: |
            If the interface is disabled, then it is okay for it to be down. If the interface is enabled however, it should be up.
        how: |
            The state of the interface is retrieved by running "ifconfig -a".
        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-speed:
        why: |
            If the interface speed is set to a low value, this could mean auto-negotiation is not working correctly and the interface does not utilize the full bandwidth available.
        how: |
            The speed of the interface is retrieved by running "ifconfig -a".
        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-duplex:
        why: |
            If the interface has half-duplex setting, this will reduce throughput, and should be investigated.
        how: |
            The duplex of the interface is retrieved by running "ifconfig -a".
        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-ipv4-address:
        why: |
            To be able to search for IP addresses in indeni, this data needs to be stored.
        how: |
            The IP address of the interface is retrieved by running "ifconfig -a".
        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-ipv4-subnet:
        why: |
            To be able to search for IP addresses in indeni, this data needs to be stored.

            The type of interface can be useful for administrators.

        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-mtu:
        why: |
            The MTU sometimes needs to be adjusted. Storing this gives an administrator an easy way to view the MTU from a large number of devices, as well as identifying incorrectly set MTU.
        how: |
            The MTU of the interface is retrieved by running "ifconfig -a".
        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-mac:
        why: |
            To be able to search for MAC addresses in indeni, this data needs to be stored.
        how: |
            The MAC address of the interface is retrieved by running "ifconfig -a".
        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-description:
        why: |

    network-interface-tx-bits:
        why: |
            It is useful to know how much data has been transmitted by the interface.

        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false

        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-rx-dropped:
