Alcatel 7750SR QoS problem: only 60% load is supported

Post by pkiran » 21 Oct 2009 22:17

Hi all,

I have the following topology for my network:

7750-1 -------------------- 7750-2
| |
7450-1 7450-2

Here, 7750-1 and 7750-2 are the two Service Routers with Alcatel 7750SR-1.
7750-1 and 7750-2 are the two Service switches with Alcatel 7750ESS-7. All the links are 10Gbps full-duplex links.

I have default network queue policy applied on all the ports. I'm sending 80% load (8Gbps full-duplex) from 7450-1 to 7450-2.

Now I'm observing that, the packets are getting dropped and the traffic is limited to 63% as shown below:

Here are my questions:
(1) I can see Egress Queue 1 is dropping packets. How do I make sure that it won't drop any packets ?
(2) What is "Threshold 15 Dropped" under the show output of "per threshold MDA discard statistics" ?

Can someone, through some light on this?

Best Regards
Kiran
