| Does the following steps make difference?
| 1. disable IPv6 (remove "options INET6) and IPsec, and
| 2. change the value of MINCLSIZE from (MHLEN + 1) to (MHLEN + MLEN + 1)
| 3. build a new kernel
| 4. try the same test
Did all that (other than deleting IPSEC, which was already deleted).
It doesn't appear to have made any difference - the test is running now,
and netstat -m is showing ...
588 mbufs in use:
468 mbufs allocated to data
114 mbufs allocated to packet headers
6 mbufs allocated to socket names and addresses
331700/256 mapped pages in use
624 Kbytes allocated to network (-1232% in use)
0 requests for memory denied
0 requests for memory delayed
4797 calls to protocol drain routines
-1232% looks much better than 1100% (approx)
There have only been 4 mclpool limit reached warnings this time (so far).
I'm also running less clients at the minute (10 or 11 instead of 15).
