Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 70256
Unknown high network load
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:44:57 EDT
With limbo beta 2 (i didn't test beta 1), there's an unusually high network load
on the 100mbit LAN here. It's almost constant at 12% on the 3com hub here. It
drops down to 0 every 15 seconds or so for a fraction of a second. The only
machines connected/online now is the Limbo machine and the server.
My setup is as follows: I've got a RedHat 7.2 server which functions as a DHCP,
DNS, firewall and internet sharing server. Everything is automatically set with
DHCP (DNS, gateway and IP address). Versions of RedHat prior to limbo work
I could use some help in determining which part of the OS specifically is
responsible for the network traffic. (i have no idea how to do that)
the ethereal program (graphical) or tcpdump (text mode) will show you what
packets go over the wire and which protocols that are... that info would be most
welcome to find out what's happening
OK, it was cups trying to contact a printer on the server which was causing all
the network traffic. It's probably because i configured cups on limbo
incorrectly. I need to check my rh7.3 install what the correct settings are.
Closing as NOTABUG.
