Pinned topic FC cards: Dumped Frames>0 and Invalid Tx Word Count>0

‏2013-03-11T15:22:22Z |
Hello,
On several FC cards dedicated to SAN disks (QLOGIC - PCI Express 4Gb FC Adapter (77103224)) I've noticed that the fcstat return Dumped Frames from 1000 to 40000 and Invalid Tx Word Count is 0.
We've also Emulex cards dedicated to backup (LPe1205-CIOv - 8Gb PCIe FC Blade Expansion Card (df1000f1df1024f1)) that return Dumped Frames=0 and Invalid Tx Word Count from 0 to 75000.
The Dump Frames was highlighetd while analyzing performance for SAP system.

I wonder and ask for your advice of the meaning of both these parameters, and if they weight for a perf analysis?

OS: AIX 6.1 TL8 SP1 or VIOS 2.2.1.1
Hardware: Power 7 - IBM,8406-71Y

Best regards.
Loïc Sarrazin.

    I've seen this with Qlogic FW 5.06.03. No more problems after FW upgrade to 5.07.01
