NetWare* Custom Statistics for Intel® PRO/1000 Gigabit Server Adapter

CE1000.LAN NetWare custom statistics counters for the Intel® PRO/1000 Gigabit Server Adapter

Duplex Mode (1=Half, 2=Full)
This statistic describes the current link duplex configuration. A zero indicates the adapter is configured to half-duplex mode. A one indicates full-duplex mode configuration. This statistic exists in v1.12 or higher of the NetWare server driver.

Network Link Status (0=Up, 1=Down)
This statistic describes the current link status of the adapter. A zero indicates the link is up and a one indicates that link is down. This statistic exists in v1.12 or higher of the NetWare server driver.

Rx Checksum Good Pkts
This statistic exists in v1.37 or higher of the NetWare server driver.

Rx Checksum Error Pkts
This statistic exists in v1.37 or higher of the NetWare server driver.

Rx CRC Error Count
This statistic describes the number of receive packets with CRC errors. Packets less than 64 bytes are not counted in this statistic.

Rx Symbol Error Count
This statistic describes the number of symbol errors between reads. The count increases for every bad symbol received, whether or not a packet is currently being received and whether or not the link is up. This statistic will increment along with the Rx Sequence Error Count when the fiber cable is either disconnected or the connector is not seated completely. Also, during driver load, this statistic will increment minimally.

Rx Missed Packets Count
This statistic describes the number of missed packets. Packets are missed when the hardware receive FIFO has insufficient space to store the incoming packet. This could be caused because of too few buffers allocated, or because there is insufficient bandwidth on the IO bus. These packets will also be counted in the Total Packets Received counter as well as in Total Octets Received.

Tx Single Collision Count
This statistic describes the number of times that a transmitted packet encountered a single collision. This counter increments only if the device is in half-duplex mode.

Tx Excessive Collisions Count
This statistic describes when 16 or more collisions have occurred on a packet. This counter increments only if the device is in half-duplex mode.

Tx Multiple Collision
This statistic describes the number of times that a transmitted packet encountered more than one collision but less than 16. This counter increments only if the device is in half-duplex mode.

Tx Late Collisions Count
This statistic describes collisions that occur after 64 bytes times. This counter increments only if the device is in half-duplex mode.

Tx TOTAL Collision
This statistic describes the total number of collisions seen by the transmitter. This counter increments only if the device is in half-duplex mode.

Tx Defer Count
This statistic describes transmit defer events. A defer event occurs when the transmitter cannot immediately send a packet due to the medium being busy either because another device is transmitting or the link is not up.

Rx Sequence Error Count
This statistic describes receive sequence error events. This statistic will increment along with the Rx Symbol Error Count when the fiber cable is either disconnected or the connector is not seated completely.

Rx Length Error Count
This statistic describes receive length error events. A length error occurs if an incoming packet is undersized (less than 64 bytes) or oversized (greater than 1522).

XON Received Count
This statistic describes the number of XON packets received. XON packets can occur when Flow Control is enabled and both the adapter and its link partner are configured to use it.

XON Transmitted Count
This statistic describes the number of XON packets transmitted. XON packets can occur when Flow Control is enabled and both the adapter and its link partner are configured to use it.

XOFF Received Count
This statistic describes the number of XOFF packets received. XOFF packets can occur when Flow Control is enabled and both the adapter and its link partner are configured to use it.

XOFF Transmitted Count
This statistic describes the number of XOFF packets transmitted. XOFF packets can occur when Flow Control is enabled and both the adapter and its link partner are configured to use it.

Flow Control Received Unsupported CountThis statistic describes the number of unsupported flow control frames that are received. This counter will increment when a flow control packet is received which does not match the adapter definition of a flow control packet. This counter is not expected to increment.

64 Byte Packets Received

256-511 Byte Packets Received
This statistic describes the number of good packets received that are 256-511 bytes in length, including CRC. Packets counted in the Missed Packet Count are not counted here. This counter does not include received flow control packets.

512-1023 Byte Packets Received
This statistic describes the number of good packets received that are 512-1023 bytes in length, including CRC. Packets counted in the Missed Packet Count are not counted here. This counter does not include received flow control packets.

1024-1522 Byte Packets Received
