buffer problem?

Any idea?

Re: buffer problem?

Fields to worry about here are "no memory " fields in the big and very big buffers. Are these couters increasing? For a stable data flow pattern these values should stop increasing. You can monitor these values for a few days. In case of a remarkable increase you may think about buffer tuning. Link below may help:

Re: buffer problem?

Try the following buffer changes to see if it helps, you will need to reload the router after you have added the config:

buffer big permanent 260

buffer big min-free 78

buffer big max-free 371

buffer verybig permanent 39

buffer verybig min-free 11

buffer verybig max-free 55

Re: buffer problem?

Hi, kkalaycioglu & rgallagh

Thanks for your replay. I have viewed that web link before I post my question. It’s not really helping me for my problem here.

I have been monitoring my router for the last a few days. Definitely there is no memory leaking and buffer leaking. But I still got "no memory" incrementing for big buffer and very big buffer even I have plenty free memory in the router.

I will adjust the buffer settings and reload the router. Keep monitoring the router for a few days.

My next question is that: If I see some input errors from some of the router interface, is that will cause this buffer “no memory” incrementing?
