How much memory do your machine have?

What kernel version are you using?

You definitly have more entries than me!

After disabling equal cost multi path routing, the machine does not kernel
panic, BUT it still dies because it runs out-of-memory!

The strange thing is the kernel 2.4.26 rtstat output on the same machine,
which does not grow out of proportions...

Kernel 2.4.26 output.
