Hi Alastair,

Hi I have a Sunfire V440 with 2 processors and 10Gbytes of memory I have configured eight zones all using the second ce interface ce1. The port is connected to a nortel buisiness policy switch running at 100Mbs/full duplex. I am seeing unacceptible levels of packet loss to the systems. With all the zones booted and idle we get around 5-6% loss which can climb to 50-60% with activity. One of these zones will run apache2, the rest will be running tomcat.


If things are idle, what data are you loosing?

kstat -m ce0 and separately, ce1 might show something.

Where and how are you measuring this loss?


I would appreciate any assitance as I am new to zones. Is this configuration excessive for the hardware?

Theoretically no. I had a customer run 3,000 netscape 2.x instances on an E4000 running 2.5.1 years ago. Business level service with SLAs. So without metrics this configuration seems fine.

Totally unrelated to zones, the first thing that comes to mind is auto-negotation mis-match. But that is pure speculation on my part based on other network performance problems folks have had.
