TG3 driver is unstable with broadcoms network card
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:17:47 EST
Description of problem:
TG3 driver does'n work well. Network dies after 12-36 hours. I can
ping from the local machine local network address (i.e. 10.10.10.10 or
127.0.0.1) successfully, but any trafic from/to network card is
stopped. I have not found any situation what makes network die.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
author: David S. Miller (email@example.com) and Jeff Garzik
description: Broadcom Tigon3 ethernet driver
parm: tg3_debug:Tigon3 bitmapped debugging message enable value
vermagic: 2.6.10-1.770_FC3smp SMP 686 REGPARM 4KSTACKS gcc-3.4
Network card is Broadcom NetXreme 5704 and server HP proliant 380 G4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. service network load (some times works, some times not)
I could'n get network work properly even with Broadcoms own driver or
HP's broadcom driver. I changed to Intel's network card and e100
driver. It seems to more steabel.
