Linux 2.0.29 slowdown (TCP/IP stack probs)

Post by Guido Stepke » Sun, 07 Sep 1997 04:00:00

Hi there !

My LINUX 2.0.29, NE2000, ADAPTEC 2940 has huge problems with
* tcp connects:

netstat -a


Occuring  with heavy load and - IMHO interrupted ftp connects.

Can anybody confirm this ? IMHO one can drive a very simple denial
of service attack with this. (Sure there are others still working..)

tnx, Guido Stepken

never seems to affect throughput or load level -- tcp connects stick in
close/wait for unbelievable periods but nothing comes of it, so I wrote
it off as a kernel issue.  Anyone had this problem with earlier kernel
