I have Linux machine red hat 7.2

because the dropping problem on eth1 interface

we perform the test according to red hat link - https://access.redhat.com/solutions/206223

finally we get the following results from crash tool

 crash> sym 0xffffffff8152aa5b

 crash> exit

please help me to understand the output from crash , what the meaning about the files path , dose this mean that problem is on the files ?

example from ifconfig about the dropping that increased every second:

   eth1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 9000
         inet  netmask  broadcast
         ether 00:50:56:9f:11:de  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
         RX packets 196320  bytes 12640182 (12.0 MiB)
         RX errors 0  dropped 38071  overruns 0  frame 0  <--- drops
  • if you do not know how to interpret kernel source code it is highly recommended to start with simple stuff like: dmesg, netstat -s, ethtool -S eth1, /proc/net/*. For advanced network tuning you can refer to: serverfault.com/a/758004/6244 Mar 30, 2016 at 8:18
