Intel Gigabit Et Dual Port Server Adapter Driver Download Install Update
I am looking for some help on a tricky problem that is only occurring occasionally. Link stays up to the switch but device stops receiving packets at the server. It comes back to life after 30 or 40 minutes if we wait it out. Not sure if it would always start working again but on several occasions it has. Ports hang a couple times a day, more on some machines than others.
I have 6 servers running in this solution. Two machines hang more often than the others. Traffic on the mbs link is very light. I have a high performance Supermicro Seaburg server platform that has four Intel devices. We have written a watchdog script to ping and reset the device when it stops for now. I suspect it has something to do with the interrupt rcv ring processing or due to the high traffic on the 1Gbe link. Main driver is the E1Q51X Don't think its a flow control issue.
Interestingly enough, we put a keep alive script in place to detect the failure on one system yesterday. It pings a neighbor every three seconds. That system has not failed but 3 of the other systems' recvrs stopped multiple times last night. All systems are running the keep alive script now. After some hours, or days, we lost the network no reception.
The only solution was to manually disable and enable the network interface. Since we don't have find a real solution, we also have write a small script like yours. Our switchs are HP ones. The e1q drivers were updated in the recently posted version You might want to give them a try.
I work with the original poster of this message and there is some curiosity on whether your mention of the new drivers implies acknowledgement of a correction to the issue listed or if the recommended action is to install the latest drivers in hopes that it will fix the issue.
Could you let us know which it is? This suggestion falls in the category of "install the latest drivers in hopes that it will fix the issue.
I think sage99's suggestions have some merit even if flow control is not the issue. Turning off some features that are not needed might cause the issue to go away. However, since you have a workaround in place that is working for you, I can understand your reluctance to try other workarounds. Besides the driver, the other thing in common would be the other system components. I noticed your BIOS version is 1.
I see that the version posted by Super Micro is version 1. If you configure them to auto do the symptoms change? Again, I am not aware of any specific fix for your issue. I am just thinking about things to look at to better understand the issue and find a workaround that does not require a script to monitor and then reset the connection. I noticed fbernon reports a similar symptom. The Ethernet controller on that adapter is different from the controllers you have, but the driver is the same.
This discussion is locked. Does anyone know what is causing the Mbs device to stop receiving packets? Switch - Catalyst switch IOS This content has been marked as final. Thanks for the suggestions. I am testing the ProSet Do you know if anything is recorded in the event logs when the port stops responding to traffic? Please post here if you try the new drivers or any configuration changes and your results. Go to original post. This is a computer translation of the original content.
