"frames lost when buffer exceeded" count skyrockets. Can I increase the size of my buffer?
Posted on 2005-04-20
Using Network Monitor in Windows 2000 Server, I see that almost as many frames are lost due to buffer being exceeded as are being delivered. Is there anything that can be done about this? I have 3 switches (2 siemens speedstream and a D-link DSL router/switch) between the 2 ends of my network. It seems the packets are getting through well, but they are being lost anyway. There is nothing in the Windows NT Server Resource Kit Networking Guide about buffer size; is it even adjustable?
