I am currently having a issue with my server, apperently after awhile, my network will slowdown and later stop working. It shows this:

Dst overflow

My kernel is 2.6.18-308.8.2.el5.028stab101.1 #1 SMP Sun Jun 24 20:25:35 MSD 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

With CentOS, also running OpenVZ with SolusVM

Any solutions?

  • wow, so much information... cat /etc/redhat-release – alexus Jan 17 '13 at 18:13
  • Here you go: CentOS release 5.8 (Final) – Kevin Hammett Jan 17 '13 at 18:16
  • can you also provide additional info where you got "dst overflow" line? maybe there's more info there? – alexus Jan 17 '13 at 18:19
  • i get it after awhile, and it basicly renders the server unusable till a reboot. – Kevin Hammett Jan 17 '13 at 18:19
  • Not sure how i can possibly fix that. Hope someone knows. – Kevin Hammett Jan 17 '13 at 18:20

apparently this is a know issue, you're going have to wait for vendor to fix it...
