eth1: no RX buffers
 
Hello, I am having problems on one of my servers.... for abt 30 mins i receive these errors and then parts of the kernel subsystem start failing...... I guess it is due to low memory available..... where do i look for the source? This box has 2G of RAM which is why i am more disturbed as to why ths happened. The box has been running for more than a month without any problems. PLz some one out there help me......

Hi..

Low end cards will give this type of error while doing large data transfer.

faced the same problem with Realtec Chipsets.
(data transfer of 20GB to backup server)


Also check the errors and Collission..
