    e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Down

    dan223

      Hoping someone can help.


      Recently upgraded a server running Xen from 3.18.44-20.el6.x86_64 to 4.9.39-29.el6.x86_64 (did a yum update so other packages would have been updated to).

       

      Since rebooting, we randomly get "e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Down", this happens for only a second, but since we have this interface bonded it can be enough for it to bring down the interface fail over, and then come back again, which causes packet loss.

       

      If tried turning pcie_aspm off, flow control off, nothing seems to help. The problem seems to be worse when high traffic is being used, but also happens randomly as well.

      Have now upgraded to 3.3.5.10, the problem seems to be happening a lot less often, but I'm not sure if its a coincidence.
