|How is percentRecvErrors computed?
The percentRecvErrors can be computed by dividing the total number of error packets by all packets (total number of correct and error packets). The quotient is then multiplied by 100 to get the percentage.
percentRecvErrors = (recvErrorPackets/allPackets) * 100
In Linux, these values may be seen by issuing the "ifconfig -a" command.
A sample output of this command is shown below.
Using the details above, percentRecvErrors is calculated as follows:
recvErrorPackets = 0 (errors:0)
