what does messages suppressed in /var/log/messages mean
Jul 1 07:18:55 linux kernel: NET: 7 messages suppressed.
what does that mean?

I could mean that the messages was repeated seven time
and there only showing the seventh?

What's the message above it say

I think that there were too many messages sent during the same period of time (regardless of whether they were identical or not.) One of the following commands might disable the printk_ratelimit and let you see the messages.

sudo /sbin/sysctl -w kernel.printk_ratelimit=0

sudo /sbin/sysctl -w net.core.message_cost=0
