    Hi guys,
    I have a SUSE10.3 server which acts as an email server and an internet gateway.
    Lately something strange started happening. My internet card keeps dying after like 15 minutes, this is my eth1 which connects to the internet modem, it completely stops working, yet the LAN card is fully active and has no problem at all, i first have to restart the network service on the server for eth1 to become active again, but still yet its very slow.
    Sometimes when i ping a site from that server, it brings an error

    Its really frustrating me and i need some help.
    Thank you Guys.

    Maybe your RAM and swap are full. What's the output of
    when this happens?

    Hi thx for the response,
    but my memory looks fine. output of free:

    What puzzles me is that the LAN card never goes off.

    I had missed to mention that im using an HP proliant ML370G5.

    Ok, memory doesn't seem to be the problem.

    Are both network cards of the same make, or do you use different cards?

    The network cards are both the same; im using the inbuilt ones which come in the HP proliant Server.

    Do you have a running LISA service? I had similar issues long time ago on a Mandrake system and disabling LISA service did the job :)
