Hello!

Our central backup server is still experiencing the same
random problems. The timouts occur every other night or so,
when the server has got high CPU load (compressing the
backups) and transfers large amounts of data at the same
time.

Nov  2 02:19:34 datatomb kernel: em1: watchdog timeout -- resetting
Nov  2 02:19:34 datatomb kernel: em1: link state changed to DOWN
Nov  2 02:19:34 datatomb kernel: vlan23: link state changed to DOWN
Nov  2 02:19:34 datatomb kernel: vlan22: link state changed to DOWN
Nov  2 02:19:36 datatomb kernel: em1: link state changed to UP
Nov  2 02:19:36 datatomb kernel: vlan23: link state changed to UP
Nov  2 02:19:36 datatomb kernel: vlan22: link state changed to UP

Jack, the hardware should be easy for you or someone else
at Intel to get your hands on:

Unfortunately I cannot give you root access to _that_ one.

Regards,
Patrick
