Henrik,

How much memory is in the system running m0n0wall?

I have seen this in a few cases, and in every case it has been some sort of
DoS attack, usually from inside the network. It is very unusual to exhaust
memory buffers under normal conditions. Essentially the m0n0wall is trying
to store traffic locally before forwarding it to its destination, but it is
having too much traffic sent to it and it does not have memory to store it
all before sending it off.

Check network activity, start unplugging ports on the switch if you need to,
it can be a pain to chase these down. While it could be something entirely
different, like I said all my cases have involved some infected PC on the
network sending out SPAM mail or other bad traffic at very high rates.

For what its worth, traffic shaper has always been uselessl to me in these
situations. 

Regards,
Josh Simoneau
