Output Queue Length (NETniOutputQueueLength)
Displays the length in packets of the output packet queue and can indicate network bottlenecks.
This parameter is inactive by default. You can activate this parameter from the PATROL Console KM tab.
If this parameter's value is consistently greater than two, then the local NIC (network interface card) may be malfunctioning or the network is experiencing a collision condition that is decreasing network efficiency. These collisions may be caused by having a large number of users in a poorly configured network or by a defective network card or printer that is sending excessive messages.
- Check with you network administrator or nerve center for information on the condition of the network.
- Consider running a diagnostic test on your NIC to check for configuration or hardware errors. Most NIC manufacturers provide a diskette that contains testing software.
