[eepro100] eth0: card reports no resources
Thu Oct 17 17:43:40 2002
recently several of our linux machines are experiencing
the eth0:card reports no resources problem.
our machines are HP Pentium III 1.2G Hz 2-CPU machines,
running redhat 2.4.18-10smp kernel
i have read through the previous emails in the archive
and updated the bdflush with
echo 100 >> /proc/sys/vm/bdflush
(i read from the documentations that the 2nd, 3rd
parameters are dummy)
and used the ipTraf to monitor the # of packets in/out
of the system.
i was wondering if anybody knows what's the max
traffic the NIC can handle? we are running some medium~high
traffic onto the systems
my systems show
x Total rates: 672.6 kbits/sec Broadcast packets: 504
x 568.2 packets/sec Broadcast bytes: 172368
x Incoming rates: 296.8 kbits/sec
x 289.0 packets/sec
x IP checksum errors: 0
x Outgoing rates: 375.8 kbits/sec
x 279.2 packets/sec
and i still get the message on and off (approx. 3~4 time every hour)
the follow is the output of eepro100-diag
