Subject: News on packet drop
Date: Thu, 29 Nov 2001 14:52:04 -0500 (EST)
After spending sometime on investigating why the packet drop occur
between a pair of linux nodes, I found that this problem is not
related to the OS. Instead, the mysterious packet drop only occurs
between a pair of nodes where one end is PC850 and the other end
is PC600. The settting I first saw the drop was a link between
a PC850 and a PC600. I did report that the drop does not appear
between a pair of freeBSD nodes. That is misleading because it was
measured on a different setting where the pair of nodes I reserved happen
to be both PC850. :-). Today I start another experiment where there are
a pair of PC850 running Linux and observe no mysterious packet drop
between them. I guess there may be some incompatible features between
either the interfaces installed on these two different types of machines.
