We are seeing approximately 2k/hr of "dropped packets" and equally "packets not received by driver". I checked several other "error" metrics for the interfaces and they are all 0. I worked with the our network team to check the switch ports and they are not reporting any incrementing errors or overruns and the switch CPU is relatively low. The utilization is low at 2-3Mbps on a 1Gbps link. Below is the definition from the documentation as to these metrics.
The number of packets dropped by the interface
while reading packets from a physical connection (wire).
Packets not received by driver
The sum of interface received overruns.
Is there a better definition of these to metrics? Based on these defnintions I'm not really sure where to look. The AMD and switch appear to be fine.
Sounds like some form of bottleneck strangling to me.
How many decodes are in use on this AMD? Balanced usage or mostly focused on one or two decodes? How much RAM and how is the Shared Memory Buffer configured?

RAM is 128GB and I've gone through rtminst and configured everything to its recommended value.
