Kernel error caused internet disconnect

NethServer Version: NethServer release 7.4.1708 (Final)
Kernel Version: 3.10.0-693.11.1.el7.x86_64


some days ago i updatet my kernel to version 3.10.0-693.11.1.el7.x86_64 . Yesterday I had a short outage of my internet connection which caused me to take a look at the logs. I noticed that there was a kernel error:

Any ideas whats going wrong here?

well, first of all I’d start telling us how is your server configured… I mean: real server or virtual one? which kind of nic?
usually this kind of issue is hw related

(Till) #3

I´m running nethserver on a proxmox node as a virtual server. Proxmox Version is: 4.1-1/2f9650d4

Here are the Hardware specs that are assigned to the nethserver VM:

Different interface drivers because of perfomance problems.

(Michael Kicks) #4

I do not use ProxMox, but as far as i can remember, in VmWare enviroment e1000 driver is not part of best practice expecially using Linux; vmxnet3 is far preferred.

I see net0 served by a e1000 driver and net1 served by virtio driver.
Which is your internet connection?

(Till) #5

Net0 is my Internet connection. Which driver should i use for this adapter?

(Michael Kicks) #6

Again i do not use ProxMox, therefore what i am suggesting could be a bad idea:
shutdown the server and change driver, trying with virtio?
