What are the acceptable error rates for downstream connections?
I am using a SB8200 modem and I am noticing what I consider a high rate of correctable errors. I am concerned that this is a sign of a pending problem. While I understand that uncorrectable errors are a bigger problem, and that a few uncorrectables is not a huge concern, I'd like to know what level of correctables indicates a pending problem. I log counters hourly and I am seeing a rate of about 100 correctable errors / hr. Is this a concern or should I turn down my level of alerting? If I go back through my history of approximately six months I do not see this rate; typically closer to 10s of correctables / hr so this represents about an order of magnitude more errors on an hourly rate.
