10.6 Virtual Decoder dropping more packets than 10.3 Physical Decoder

I've only had our 10.6 Virtual Decoder online for about 24 hours, and it has dropped more packets than what our 10.3 physical decoder over it's entire life span.


I'm a little concerned, so I was wondering if there are anyways to determine if this is something normal with 10.6 (ie. filtering etc) or should I be investigating more to find a cause to the problem.


Some stats for reference.
