yesterday I had my first experience of an if_re interface simply stopping
responding. I ma running 7.0-RELEASE on the machine, but with
the lates files taken from here:
Luckily I had worried about tis and have set the machine up to reboot
if it suspects that it';s netowkring is down, so twelve hours later it
did so and I can login again. Is there anythign useful I can get out
of the logs to try and work out what the problem is though ? A I see
lots of messages in the log like this:
"error sending response: not enough free resources"
but I am assuming that this is due to the ether stall, not the cause of
it. Would enabling polling on the interface help ? (i.e. is this possiblky
a lost interrupt issue?).
All advice welcome...
