Early arrival discards


Am seeing some out of order and discard packets. There is no visible cirucit issue. No packet loss. QOS is configured.

Early arrival discards increment right away after I clear media counters. What would cause this ? anything that I can adjust in configuration that would help ?

Thank you

Re: Early arrival discards

Out of order packets can be the result of faulty load-balancing upstream of the device. Even though your directly-connected circuit is clean, there could be an issue with a transit provider between you and the source. I'd bring it up with your circuit provider, particularly if it is affecting quality of service.
