    SubjectDisaster under heavy network load on 2.4.x

    My friend told me to noticed you about problems I had with 2.4.x line of
    kernels. I started up from 2.4.3. Under heavy load I was getting
    messages from telnet, ping, nmap "No buffer space available". Strace
    told me it was error marked as ENOBUFS.

    First thought was it was my fault. I asked many people and nobody could
    help me. So I tried 2.4.5. It was a disaster also (should I mention few

    Second thought was to try 2.2.19 and it was good choice. Now there are
    almost no messags like those above. Only thing that still happens is
    "Neihgbour table overflow".

    Some data about my Linux box:

    2 x PIII 800 MHz/1024 MB; 2 x Intel EExpres 100; 3 x 3com 3c900B-Combo.
    Summarizing all traffic about 5mbit at the moment.

    # arp -an | wc -l

    Any more info needed?

    PS. It would be nice to be CCed with replies, beacause I am not
    subscribed to LKML.
