Hi all,

Lately Im getting the following errors on my logs. They are also printed out
to the terminal, hundreds at a time I might add.
The machine is an old P90 with 64 meg ram and a 340 meg HDD. It runns the
firewall for our network so it only realy filters packets and hands out IPs
via DHCP to my lan.
It is running two network cards, both PCI, neither the same, (one is a
RealTek 8139, the other PCI-NE2K)
Our link is a cable 1.5meg connection...
And thats about all the relevent information I can think of.

Does anyone have any ideas what the cause of this might be ? My logs are
filling up rather quick.

As a complete guess you haven't run out of swap space by any chance have
you?  What's the output of:

"vmstat 1"
"df -h"

?

He has. He's hit the hard limit of both memory and swap and is suffering
the due reward.

`free' as well.
