Hi all

After a bit of googling and unable to find an answer I have arrived here. Trying to figure out why there are drops

eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500

While googling I came across a script https://github.com/netoptimizer/network-testing/blob/master/bin/softnet_stat.pl in an attempt to find the reason for the drops but nothing is shown as below while  "ifpps --dev eth0 --promisc"output shows drops
Moreover the output of command 
ethtool -S eth0

Thanks in advance and apologies if I have missed something.
