IMO, I think this area of dev should be revisited before 4.9-RELEASE. Because when I brought it down to 4.8-RELEASE via cvsup, it has not failed yet. It usually fails around 12 hrs from boot. And it has been 14+ hours now running very fine.
One thing I noticed though... it seems that over time, the peak values on netstat -m grows. Although it is still far from the max value I set in kern.ipc.nmbclusters. Last value before networking stalls is around 9000 to 10000+ on my mbuf clusters. Now with 4.8-RELEASE, the netstat -m shows a steady peak value of just 5226.
