eth Output overload


A message has been picked up from Bigsister which reads:

<server> Net eth2 output overload alert

Unable to find anything relevant in any logs and no decent info on google so presume this is an information messages which I can ignore (hopefully).

Server is a Dell 6650 and its version is 2.6.9-67

Thanks in advance...

If eth2 is a physical port in use then I would see if you can get a hold of just how much traffic it might be pushing... else wise I am not sure of anything else to suggest. Given the error message it just seems to reporting that it's pushing too much traffic outwardly.

Thanks r3sistance, problem is ive already checked and there is hardly any output (or input) traffic on that interface which is physical by the by.

Will keep an eye on Bigsister for any more messages but theres no performance issues so i'll just put down to one of those things unless anyone can suggest otherwise.

Thanks again...
