Hello Guys, 

I have been having packet loss issues on my network. I decided to do a show port congestion on one of my ports and it came back with a huge packet loss value which was increasing.

Port Congestion Monitor
Port      Link      Packet
          State     Drop
3:4         15332915
          Link State: A-Active, R-Ready, NP-Port Not Present L-Loopback

Doing the same command on the second port which is bundled with this one shows no drops.

Please I need a way out on what could be the cause of this issues.

Hello Pyke

There are actually a number of things that could cause this.  From what you posted you have one link that looks to be getting oversubscribed.  What is the algorithm you are using on the LAG?  I think the best approach would be to open a case with TAC as there are a number of ways this can take place.
