Symptom: Hardware diagnostics may mark an interface 'F' and "show interface" will show the interface is "Down" due to "Hardware Failure", but link is still being established. This might cause a delay in any failure mechanism of a connected device to detect this failure. Conditions: A rare condition of a hardware diagnostic failure is required to trigger a diagnostic failure. If the port is marked 'F', but link is established by the neighboring device, it is possible to have traffic sent to this logically down interface. This is referred to as a "black-hole" for traffic.
