Rx frames low on embedded system
I made a little Linux OS (that should be based on ancient RedHat 9), recompiled my kernel for it and included all in a neat TFTP boot image. The embedded device (actually meant to be a gateway*)has a Tolapai CPU.
Everything works, all three NICs eth0, eth1, eth2 can even go to Internet.
Only when our test team tests the device with Smartbit (network test infrastructure) they constantly complain Rx frames would be too few.
I am using a 22.214.171.124 kernel and the LAN driver is a proprietary one made by the device maker (actually it is a modified Intel Embedded 0.8.0 driver).
Any ideas? I am out of ideas right now.
* not using it as a gateway, just configured it as a normal Linux workstation
