[eepro100] eth0: card reports no resources
Tue Sep 17 18:43:01 2002
I was wondering if there was any new information or resources on the Intel
'card reports no resources' problem? From what I can tell, this was fixed
by newer versions of the intel drivers, but could something else be causing
these messages? Some of the research of posts I have done mentioned mbuf
overflows, and I am wondering if such messages could be caused by synflood?
We are having trouble with a firewall machine that seems to be getting this
plague for 10-20 mins at a time. When you unplug the eth0 cable (connection
to our provider, link is 100MB/Full Duplex, tons of errors on the ifconfig
line, but I know this is from a bad driver implementation) the machine
becomes responsive again. This makes me think that the OS is running out of
job descriptors and simply cannot -do- anything while this is happening.
Can someone give me a hint as to what to look for? This is a RedHat 6.2 box
Please and thank you.
