Best documentation for port error diagnosis on 4100s

I am working on a small san containing 4100s on v5.3.0. I want to be able to diagnose performance problems and I have started looking at output of the portstatsshow command but although I can find a manual that explains the command it doesnt explain what a high count in a particular field means or how to fix it. I looked through all the online docs I could find but couldnt see anything. Any ideas???

Thanks for the response but I couldnt find anything relevant in that manual. Specifically I am looking for an explaination of what causes enc_out and invalid ordered set errors and how to resolv those errors - check cable, perform loopback tests etc. I also want to know the significance of the Time BB Credit Zero Figure also from the Portstatsshow command.
