Yes. Often the clue for that is CRC errors on the interface. If of course the duplex
mismatch is occurring on something you get at.

The only time we had continuous low-level packet loss was when our fiber provider
configured 100M-half-duplex on their side and our end "auto-negotiated"
Apart from that everything looked to be working perfectly :-)

No SLA, hence the question. Subjectively I expect that a fibre circuit
to a major provider will be delivering very low levels of loss, and very
low levels of jitter. I just don't have enough knowledge of what's
actually normal for a standard business fibre connection in central
Auckland to quantify my "low levels".
As an indication, for this month I've got peak loss of 3.5-4.5% and
average ~0.08% to two different DNS servers on the provider's network.
Off to an Australian host it's a similar level, but at 26ms median rtt
instead of a mere 1.5ms.
