Network problems: [eth0] SW - Redhat 8.0
i maintain and run the server for my dept., it runs on RH8.0 .. i am having some problems witht he network... the network eth0 is fine upon a startup.. but after some time
ps ax gives me
880 [eth0] SW .. the process is paged out.. ifconfig still shows the interface, and /etc/initd/network status gives me eth0 running.
i cannot ping to any machine outside and even if i can there is a lot of package loss...
route takes a hell lot of time to show me my gateway and sometimes it fails to do a name look up because the nslookup times out.
can u please help me.. what is going wrong.. i think there is some problem with the sendmail services that i am running, but i cannot figure it out.
please help me out.
