Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 90395
Viper redboot network load/debug unreliable
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Using both 2.0 redboot and current CVS trunk, redboot on viper is unreliable
over the net. Loading via GDB by itself seems okay, but it doesn't take much
more traffic for things to go badly wrong. When watching with tcpdump, it seems
things quickly get stuck in a rut with the viper sending a packet, and the host
responding with an ack, but the viper waiting 1 sec and resending anyway.
Verified with both Linux and NT hosts so it's not a host stack problem.
I need to look closer at this, but need the bug entered for 2.0 known problems...
