No buffer space available



  • The firewall seems to have run out of resources. It's a 1.7Ghz machine with 256MB RAM and seems to be darn sluggish. I would have never thought that most firewalls would even use up anywhere near this amount of resources but then, not everything is designed the same way.

    Could someone confirm that the above error message has to do with the machine not being powerful enough? I was not able to grab any stats before I rebooted unfortunately.

  • Were you using wireless or something?

    No, just downloading a huge number of stock images and it keeps dying on me, needing a reboot. It's got a full T1 to work with.



  • If you search the forum ("no buffer space") you'll find a few more posts on the subject.



  • Strangely, this is the only thread I'm finding. I'll try again, maybe I missed something in how I'm searching?

    Yup, that's what I figured :).

    From the posts I've read, I'm getting the feeling that it might be because I'm using a 4-port Ethernet card. Perhaps it doesn't have enough buffering. I'll look into that next.  Perhaps there's a way of using system memory with it or something.
