DL380 + Linux + High Load=Network Drop


Hello Linux Gurus!

I am in need of assistance with a DL380 G4 running Linux. The problem is that when the machine is under a high load, it will drop off of the network, and return to the network when the load is lowered. Has anyone else had this problem before, were you able to find a fix? Someone suggested to update the NIC driver, it just so happens HP released a NIC driver for the bcm5700 modules on May 23, 2006. I installed the new driver, but no dice, the machine still dropped from the network. If anyone can provide tips on debugging Linux, or if there's a silver bullet on a fix, any information is greatly appreciated. Additional info below:

My best to you,

Rick King, Boise, ID
