hmm... I have restarted the operating system with CentOS's original kernel and
done again my experiments. I found that bug has not occurred again.
I don't know why. Maybe, the traditional libpcap has no provided
like PF_RING. Or, perhapse something wrong is indeed in patched kernel or Dell
BTW, could you tell me what OS distribution you used in your testing PF_RING,
RedHat AS4 or Others? And what kernel source codes are downloaded, from
vendor's websites or www.kernel.org?
I very thank you if you can recommend what OS distribution and what
are put together can achieve the maximal stability.
