Hi all,

I'm experiencing %subj% problem on my large academic proxy-server.
I have daily tens of these messages in dmesg. Machine does not hang up,
but stops responding for a while (<10sec) and slows down explicitly. 

I have read about similar problems in the archive of this mailinglist,
tried newest Becker's driver, increased RX_RING_SIZE, and it still happens.

Do you have any idea how to solve this problem, except changing the network

I'm using debian woody, Linux cache 2.4.14-grsec-1.8.8 #3 Mon Nov 19 23:15:57
