Hi there,

Running xm top so as to show network traffic.

There are fields:

Net0 RX: <NUMBER>pkts <NUMBER>err <NUMBER>drop

I'd like to know what the number before the RX 'drop' field really means.

Because I see a hell of a large number there which grows very rapidly.

However, ifconfig in the domU represented by that line in xm top shows no dropped packets at all.

There seems to be some kind of conflict here. I would have assumed that either the packet was dropped or not...
