RX & TX ECB buffers Over 16 Meg

I've got a small problem with a Compaq Prosignia server running under NW 4.1. One of the cards AMD PCnet comes with the custom statistics named: RX & TX Buffers Over 16 Meg. The values in these parameters are almost as high as total number of packets sent. According to the Utilities Reference (Red book), it means a performance penalty when this happens? Is there any suggestion to avoid this problem?

Thanks.

I do not think this is a problem.  As a matter of fact, if your server is loaded, you may want to look at the statistics then, if they don't change then you should be alright.  If there is a problem (such as a buffer overload) you will have to increase the Packet receive buffers with a set command or the configuration program.

I hope this helps.

Well, I thought that there should be some reordering of loading drivers or some switches that force RX & TX buffers to be below 16 Meg....
