Re: "No buffer space available" when scanning a Class A or B net
From: Bob McLaren <BobMcLaren () fssi-ca com>
Date: Fri, 05 Mar 2004 10:48:26 -0800

Here are the settings that I had:
   net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096      87380   174760
   net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096      16384   131072
   net.ipv4.tcp_mem = 48128      48640   49152
   net.core.rmem_default = 65535
   net.core.wmem_default = 65535
   net.core.rmem_max = 65535
   net.core.wmem_max = 65535

And here is what I changed them to:
   net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096      87380   8388608
   net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096      65536   8388608
   net.ipv4.tcp_mem = 4096       4096    4096
   net.core.rmem_default = 65536
   net.core.wmem_default = 65536
   net.core.rmem_max = 8388608
   net.core.wmem_max = 8388608

Unfortunately, they did not seem to have an affect. I am still receiving those error messages with those grueling pauses. Any other buffer settings that I could play with?

In case there is any useful information in it, I am including a dump from 'free' and from 'sysctl -a' (I know it's a lot of info to be pasting into an email, but I'm not sure what is or is not relevant. Plus I'm desparate...)
