Unexplained drops on QOS dropped graph

Solution Number: S26749

Issue

There are small but unexplained drops showing on the QOS dropped graph.

Solution

These are due to micro bursts as such. Suppose the BW limit is set to 1 Mb. If there is a transfer of 100Kb in .1 sec that = .1 x 100Kb = 1M. This will hit the limit and cause drops. The dropped graph is more granular than the sent graph so you will see the drops without seeing the BW limit hit on the sent graph
