          Hi there,

           

          Do you wish to filter the resource to hide the In/Out discards or do you wish to address the issue?

          Transmit and Receive Discards occur when the connected device is not able to transmit/receive a packet, either because it is too busy (timeouts occur) or because there is a configuration mismatch in either end (buffer size, MTU, etc).

          Another common cause of discards is if the data on that interface isn't tagged with correct VLAN info, that is when a VLAN tagged packet gets discarded by a none/wrong VLAN configured recipient.

          I'd take a close look at the latency on the device and the interface utilization. If a lot of discards occur then the data would have to be retransmitted and that increases interface utilization.
