Question
Why am I getting In Discards on my Tunnel Bridge Port (tbp)?
Environment
  • S-Series
  • K-Series
  • 7100-Series
  • Tunnel
  • All firmware versions
Answer
A tunnel bridge port will drop certain control frames that would otherwise not be dropped on a physical port.  Engineering states this should have no impact and it is FAD.
Additional notes
If you are seeing a very large number of In Discards incrementing on the TBP port (tens of packets per second), there may be something else going on.  A "debug packet filter" can help identify what packets are being dropped.
