ISSUE: The calculations used for interface Error and Discard thresholds are incorrect resulting in missed alarms when thresholds are exceeded.

ROOT CAUSE: The calculations used for interface Error and Discards are not taking 64 bit integers into consideration.

RESOLUTION: This issue is resolved in Spectrum 09.03.00.H01 with the 09.03.00.D79 patch. This resolution is also included in Spectrum 09.04.02.00 and will be in Spectrum 10.00.00.00

The release notes will look similar to the following:

  • Symptom: Port Error/Discard threshold calculations %Error in performance tab is incorrect due to integer overflow.
    Resolution: Port Error/Discard threshold calculations %Error in performance tab is corrected.
