SubjectRe: strange network hangs using kdb
Are you using eepro100 network cards ?
Because we have observed that many times when we enter kdb
the card on this machine goes crazy and starts pumping 8808 congestion
control packets and other cards stop sending data over the network.
try tcpdump and see if something like this is going on ..
