Re: [Xen-users] Network performance problem

I am having a similar issue I see the retransmissions and dup acks basically everything you are seeing. The 2 things that are different on my end is that I'm using centos5 and piranha(for a virtual failover IP). I see the duplicate and retranssmissions on eth1:1(the vip from piranha). Would the below fix for you also apply to me(ethtool -K eth0 tx off). Also would I apply this to the VIP? ethtool -K eth1:1 tx off?

You already gave me the right hint, without me noticing:
'ethtool -K eth0 tx off' in the domUs.
That immediatly fixed the problem. Thanks!
Question remains: Why does it fix the problem? I never had to do that
with kernel 2.6.18 (Xen 3.1.0) from XenSource.
