Eth0: Too much work at interrupt problem?

Was wondering if anyone has come across a problem where Linux throws a tantrum and spits up the message "Eth0: Too much work at interrupt"?
I haven't had this problem before and the machine has been recently loaded with Red Hat 8. The machine is also new.

I am guessing the driver or network card is faulty but would appreciate any advice, comments or suggestions anyone might have.

Many thanks,

Might want to try moving the NIC to a different PCI slot. Sometimes if you put two high-traffic cards (say a NIC and a video card) on the same IRQ it can cause conflicts. That or swap the NIC with a spare to see if it's an actual hardware failure.
