Description of problem:
RHEL 3.0 v2.4.21 is dropping frames when reaching 70 MB on the link.
The 3Com 3C996-SX with BCM5700 v7.1.22 driver has been tried and an
Intel long wave gigabit ethernet card has also been used to confirm
the frame drops.
There are no messages in /var/log/messages that indicated that the
frame(s) being dropped unless we missed them. We couldn't find any
TCP dropped frames or frame retransmissions in /proc interfaces
either, but we know for sure that the frame being dropped from
analyzing the iSCSI trace captured with the Analyzer.
For FTP has been used as a test to just simply transfer a big file in
The iSCSI driver is the Cisco based iSCSI driver version 126.96.36.199 (the
latest driver for 2.4.x kernel).
