This can be found in OneClick by viewing the Interface model, Expanding Thresholds and Watches and then Expanding Thresholds. From here you can set a threshold so that you will get an alarm when the error rate breaches the threshold.

Spectrum uses the following OIDs or objects to show “Interface Errors & Discards” for an interface.

So when polled, if the resulting calculation results in 2% or greater you get the alarm "
