[c-nsp] Output queues - access vs. trunk

Yes, I know the problem is the small buffers, but what surprised me was the difference between access and trunk modes.

I will look for the information on the port queue adjustments as most of the ports will have fairly low utilization.

You're likely running into the low size of buffers on that switch. If you aren't using many ports at once you can raise the maximum size of the port queue a good bit since it just carves more out of the main shared pool on that switch. A search of the archives should find the relevant commands. You're looking for the command to set them above 100% buffer size allocation.
