The traffic through interface abruptly halts randomly when under a load, 
without any signs of a problem. What is interesting is that the 
communication through unix domain sockets appears to be down too, since 
some scripts that connect to database not able to complete as well, so 
whatever this problem is it affect the whole network subsystem. We tried 
to replace hardware and it did not help. Only after we replaced bce(4) 
with IntelPro card (em) the problem has went away.
