RX packets errors

still figuring out on why this box having RX packets errors:
# netstat -i

or you can see from /proc/net/dev

since this is production server, can't simply reboot to test it out. it could be hardware issue here, maybe switch, cable or the NIC itself or maybe tcp/udp packets. any clue :(
