The Internet2 network publishes 10-second data for all interfaces on  
both its backbone network and the individual racklans in each of its  



Default graphs don't show errors. You need to create a custom graph  
and click the appropriate checkbox. If you want to view a large number  
of interfaces with their errors on a single page, you can create a  
Custom View that includes errors for any number of selected interfaces.
