    Link Resets The number of link reset protocol frames received/transmitted by this port from/to the attached switch. The switch transmits a link reset to initiate the link reset protocol or recover from a link timeout. This occurs normally to establish BB_Credit or on any port in order to recover lost BB_Credit.

  • Page 84: Class 2 Statistics, Class 3 Statistics

    This can occur if frames are received before the switch completes initialization or if the switch is servicing so many requests that it can not process a new request. The port generates frames if the switch is not ready to accept commands. This may indicate temporary congestion.

  • Page 85: Error Statistics

    The number of Class 3 frames discarded, including multicast frames with bad D_IDs. The switch increments this count when it discards a frame that cannot be routed. This occurs most frequently when a destination becomes unavailable without the source realizing the destination is unavailable. There are no thresholds for this value.

  • Page 86

    • Invalid transmission words The number of times that the switch detected invalid transmission words from the attached device. This indicates that a frame or primitive sequence arrived at the switch’s port corrupted. This corruption can be due to the attached device performing a reset, plugging or unplugging the link, bad optics at either end of the cable, bad cable, or a dirty or poor connection.

  • Page 87: Troubleshooting Tips, Button Functions

    A received frame exceeded the Fibre Channel frame maximum size or was less than the Fibre Channel minimum size, indicating the frame arrived at the switch’s port corrupted. Frame corruption may be caused by device disconnection, an optical transceiver failure at the device, a bad fiber-optic cable, or a poor cable connection.
