Introduction

Output drops are caused by traffic rates exceeding the maximum bandwidth specification of the interface.

Solution

There are actually only 2 solutions to output drops:

  1. Increase the Interface speed
  2. Reduce the traffic throughput

If you have monitoring in place then it would be advisable to increase the alert threshold to a significant value.
