 Subject:  Beta 1.2b10 - All mbuf clusters exhausted
 Date:  Fri, 16 Sep 2005 23:05:52 -0400
Just updated from 1.2b3 to the newest beta and noticed this in my logs 
(many times) during high-volume traffic.

/kernel: All mbuf clusters exhausted, please see tuning(7).

I'm running off a CF card and updated via the GUI update page. 
Everything else looks ok and the device is running so I'm not real 
worried, but obviously something is wrong. Going back to 1.2b3 (where I 
am now) shows no such errors.

Running "df -k" through exec.php on 1.2b3 shows:

$ df -k
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md0c      10879 9669  1210    89%    /
procfs             4    4     0   100%    /proc
/dev/ad2a       5919 5553   366    94%    /cf

and on 1.2b10:

$ df -k
Filesystem 1K-blocks  Used Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md0c      10879 10134   745    93%    /
/dev/ad2a       5919  5613   306    95%    /cf
procfs             4     4     0   100%    /proc

Am I just at the limits of the card now? Is there a configuration change 
I can make to clear this up?

Thanks.
