Hi,

I don't believe so, results of ulimit -a:

Once this problem happens I can restart Apache, start it with 'httpd 
-X', start it with strace and the exact same thing happens.

As soon as I do a ifconfig bond0.2 down it starts working.  If I then 
bring that interface up it carries on working for a while and then stops!

This box is not in production yet so has virtually no loading and no 
clients (apart from me).  I have the same config running on identical 
hardware that doesn't have a bonded connection to the network or VLAN 
tagging that has been in production for over 6 months and no problems at 
all.

The odd thing is that Apache sees the connection request and then just 
drops it!

Is there any further debugging I can perform to try to locate this?

Many thanks in advance,


				Neil.
