WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Random packet loss in NPM

Table of contents

Updated March 23, 2017

Overview

Packet loss sometimes occurs on NPM VM randomly. Other guest OS machines on the same host may show no packet loss.

Environment

NPM 12

Detail

Packets are dropped between the Virtual Switch and the Guest Operating System Driver. This is due to the RX buffer running out memory.

See the The output of esxtop show dropped receive packets at the virtual switch (1010071) (© 2017 VMware, Inc., available at https://kb.vmware.com/, obtained on April 3, 2017.) article for more information.
