    When I run "netstat -s", I see that counters for "incoming packets
    discarded" under IP and "packet receive errors" under UPD incrementing. I
    have correlated this to an application crashing. The app uses UDP.

    netstat -s|egrep 'Ip:|Udp:|disca|error'
    99792 incoming packets discarded
    99792 packet receive errors

    I am not seeing interface errors on the systems or switch.

    How can I determine why packets are being discarded?
