Broadcom Network Adapters 5700 Rev 14 and 5701 Rev 15 Stop Transmitting Under Heavy Traffic (2242)
Under heavy traffic, Broadcom 5700 Rev 14 and 5701 Rev 15 might stop transmitting data. This failure is associated with a range of situations, including those involving VMotion or the service console.
To address this issue, choose another type of network adapter. In general, do not use the Broadcom 5700 Rev 14 and 5701 Rev 15 because they do not sustain heavy traffic well.
