Hard to tell if it is your dc0 ethernet adapter or a swap issue. I would try a different ethernet controller and see what happens as that is a cheap experiment.

Yeah, I missed the swap message - when your system is swapping then
performance will definitely be terrible.

And when it's *out* of swap space, it'll be even worse. The OP has two problems, both of which could be significant. Out of swap is, for certain.

In fact now I see that I've already given this advice to the original
poster on two previous occasions (November and January).  I guess he
chooses not to believe it.


Kris: if so, his loss.

Ross: add more swap space, and perhaps your system will behave a tad better. There's an article in the manual; see also swapon(8) and /etc/fstab.

Re: watchdog timeouts, see dc(4). If you are on a ISP that has some performance problems (mine seems that way), that could be it. Also, check your other network equipment; if you have any way, for example, to test with a different switch/hub/router, and to try different settings for the adapter (duplex/half, etc.), it might be worth a try.

Or, you could always change your ethernet card (unless we're talking about laptops here).
