SubjectNIU - transmit timed out (10Gbit Sun Neptune). - 2.6.29
From

Hi Netdev and Matheos.

This morning I got the transmit timed out on the Neptune card again:

As requested by Matheos I've collected register-dumps every minute in cron
using this script:

#!/bin/bash
echo "################ START ######################"
date
lspci -vvv -xxx -s 84:0
free
date
echo "################ END ######################"
The data from around the timeout is here
http://krogh.cc/~jesper/niu-problem.txt
Reset was done at:
Apr 17 09:00:56 hest kernel: [1714535.390236] NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth4 (niu):
transmit timed out

The log is a bit strage, but it represents the actual behavior of the
system in the period. Much lagging and interactivity very poor. The actual
every minut cron-dump of registers have actually ended in overlapping.

Can this problem be a side effect of the scheduler/ext3 stuff flying
around (I have 2 hung task just before in the log).
http://krogh.cc/~jesper/dmesg-hest-20090417.txt)?

This time.. the problem had a quite different nature. It actually made the
system drop connections (to NFS clients and stuff) over 45 minutes until
it eventually kicked in and reset the card .. which then brought it back
into
operation again. In the period there was basically "no traffic" on the
NIC, which might be why it took so long for the problem to be detected.. ?
