As some of you may remember, I reported a problem with MBUF leakage
on a FreeBSD-stable system running an Emerging Technologies ET5025
card. After Dennis' indication that the problem was FreeBSD-stable
and rather strong suggestion that I need to be running 2.1.0, I
have reinstalled this system running stock FreeBSD-2.1.0. The
problem still exists and can be directly related to activity over
the 56K connection. A much busier system of same kernel vintage
without the ET drivers hovers at around '75 mbufs in use' after
several days of uptime. The system will reach it's max of 4096K
after about 48 hours of uptime and eventually reboot. I'm at a loss
for how to track this down and would heartily welcome more
Hit Dennis on the head and get him to admit that it's his drivers 8)
Some months ago, I worked with Dennis to track down the mbuf leak
problem. The leak was in FreeBSD code, not his driver.
Disclaimer: dennis may have introduced a new leak since we worked on
tracking down the one I ran into.
