Re : Big Packet loss and PacketFilter::Dropped_Packets

I am using the basic PF_Ring edition to monitor the interfaces. Is that what is causing the issues ? What kind of throughput can the basic PF_Ring (non ZC) handle ? If I am looking at network traffic above 100 mbps will I definitely need the PF_Ring ZC edition ?

Might want to take a look at this. We had issues with dropped packets until I disabled offloading...etc on the monitoring nic.
