Hi all

My freebsd is running 4.6-RELEASE FreeBSD
I got the following from /var/log/messages

Mar 24 17:58:30 router /kernel: pullup failed
Mar 25 02:54:58 router /kernel: All mbuf clusters
exhausted, please see tuning(7)

I added kern.ipc.nmbclusters=32768
and netstat is running fine but still got the messages
from /var/log. Please help and what should I check

Thank you
