Description Tim Waugh 2002-02-08 08:04:37 UTC
Description of Problem:
I am getting lots and lots of messages like this logged:

eth1: tx frame #302034 is busy.
eth1: tx frame #302037 is busy.
eth1: tx frame #302135 is busy.
eth1: tx frame #302217 is busy.
eth1: tx frame #302281 is busy.
eth1: tx frame #302294 is busy.
eth1: tx frame #302297 is busy.
eth1: tx frame #302309 is busy.

There are so many that they push other messages out of the ring buffer after not
very long.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.17-0.13 (i686)

How Reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make network traffic.

Additional Information:
There are two Ethernet cards in this machine, but it seems to be caused by
traffic on the National Semiconductor Corporation DP83815 (MacPhyter) Ethernet
Controller.

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 2002-03-28 23:06:53 UTC
Ben, should this message be throttled?

Comment 2 Ben LaHaise 2002-03-28 23:19:41 UTC
This message is gone in the recent 2.4.18 based kernels, so it should be fixed. 
Please reopen this bug if the problem persists.
