we have Linux VM red hat 7.2 version with two LAN interfaces
the Linux machines are ruining on ESXi - 5.5.0
and we have very strange issue ,
the conflict is between the ifconfig command to ethtool command results!
why the results from ethtool isn't indicates on dropping problem on eth1
while from ifconfig I get the indicates that dropping problem exist on eth1?
( see ifconfig - increasing of numbers on dropped indicates on dropping error )
# ethtool -S eth1 | grep -i drop drv dropped tx total: 0 drv dropped tx total: 0 drv dropped rx total: 0 drv dropped rx total: 0
ifconfig results on eth1:
# ifconfig -a | grep RX | grep dropped RX errors 0 dropped 123136 overruns 0 frame 0 RX errors 0 dropped 140938047 overruns 0 frame 0 RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 # ifconfig -a | grep RX | grep dropped RX errors 0 dropped 123136 overruns 0 frame 0 RX errors 0 dropped 140938083 overruns 0 frame 0 <-------------- after second RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0
second - is it true to except the results from ethtool as real results while the results from ifconfig actually inst indicate on problem?
remark - drooping problem are only displayed on Linux version 7.x and not on the other Linux version as 6.x or 5.x
