Re: ipf problem
The first section of Chapter 11 of the FAQ may have some info to think about
(especially with two 10/100 cards in your box):
If you run a busy server, gateway or firewall, you should make sure to prevent
memory starvation to various parts of the kernel described below.
The options(4) man page talks about the options presented.
An option you may need to change for a busy server, gateway or firewall is
NMBCLUSTERS. This controls the size of the kernel mbuf cluster map. On
your computer, if you get messages like "mb_map full", you need to
increase this value. If traffic on a networking interface stops for no apparent
reason, this may also be a sign that you need to increase this value. A
reasonable value on the i386 port with most 100Mbps ethernet interfaces (no
matter how many the machine has) is 8192.
