    A- Host
    B- Switch/Router
    C- Switch/Router
    D- Host

    1. I sent 10,000 frames from A->D, but I received 9,000 frames
    2. I sent same 10,000 frames from D->A, this time I received total 10,000 frames.

    Assume I haven't added any firewall/policy/ACL configured on any of interfaces.

    Now, I would like to know what could be possible reasons for that 1000 frames drop.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Perhaps
    or some other congestion management scheme?
    Is there any other network traffic?
    It depends on the routers...
    Or it is broken.

    Hi Johann,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I guess,

    1. Based on configurations on that path
    2. Congestion / Other traffic
    3. Transmission Rate[Egress/Ingress traffic rates different
    4. CRCs/Bad cables at the time of traffic sent
