	-	the document doesnt lead one to believe that full duplex
		are not deferred packets anywhere. in fact, in the case of
what may
		a sync problem, full duplex may be the problem if you have
10mb half 
		set on other interfaces on the wire. is this a subnet
w/mixed duplex devices?
	-	deferred packets refer to the sending frames, not receiving
		XMIT increments this counter when the software is ready to
		send a frame but the interface hardware isnt.

	-	have you checked for broken NICs, or simply too many
stations on the shared medium.

There is a WS-C2950T-24 with IOS C2950-I6Q4L2-M, Version 12.1(13)EA1
One of its ports is attached to a 10 Mbit Allied Telesyn optical
transceiver, the port is configured for full duplex, speed 10.

The problem is that the packet loss in this link is up to 20%. There
are 0 input or output errors in "sh interface". The only suspicious
counter is "deferred" which is rapidly growing.

What could be the reason ?

I also do not understand how the deferred counter could be growing on a full
duplex link. According to
it should not happen, if I correctly understand the meaning of

Thanks in advance for any input.
