Have a C 5k 24 port switch that drops packets after the 8 ping and 6.  I have IP Cameras and APS attached to the switch.  Could the drops be due to the devices installed or is there a loop.  The switch is a c5k125. Is there a command I can run to see if there is a loop or if I'm putting to much of a load on the switch.

Might be a multicast problem with the cameras - could you disable the ports to the cameras and run the test again ?!

I disconnected all the cameras and getting the same results.

If it was multicast what would that mean.

Hi Nola,

It's very unlikely you are having a loop condition, but it's hard to say without more information. Try taking a look at spanning tree, just in case: 

show spantree stats active

Maybe It can really be a multicast problem... In some conditions, it could flood all ports...
