nfs can't get kernel request slot
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Running fisher on a Big Sur, dual B3-800Mhz processors, 4GB RAM.
During moderately heavy NFS loads, the network will die with messages like
this output to /var/log/messages:
Feb 13 14:18:46 pilot kernel: nfs: server omega not responding, still
Feb 13 14:19:36 pilot kernel: nfs: server tungsten.rtp not responding,
Feb 13 14:20:36 pilot kernel: nfs: task 6818 can't get a request slot
Feb 13 14:20:36 pilot kernel: nfs: task 6817 can't get a request slot
Feb 13 14:30:13 pilot kernel: nfs: server tungsten.rtp OK
Feb 13 14:30:23 pilot kernel: nfs: server omega OK
Feb 13 14:30:30 pilot kernel: nfsd: terminating on signal 9
eepro100 driver, right?
There's a newer version of the eepro100 driver in our current
development sources, plus the e100 driver; one of them is
likely to solve this problem. When we put out a new kernel,
please try it and let us know whether it solves the problem.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
closing, lack of input.
