Hi there!

I am trying to decipher what the ifconfig is about. Meaning, I did a man ifconfig, and it brought up a lot of definitions for certain aspects of the ifconfig, but it didn't say anything about the overruns.

I'm trying to figure out what the overruns is doing, testing, or what it's all about. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can give me some information!

i would greatly appreciate it!

Receiver overruns usually occur when packets come in faster than the kernel can service the last interrupt.

just my two cents...
