Hi Everyone,
   I have centos 5.1 with vmware 1.06 server sitting on top. I only have two guests with minimal traffic right now. Every say 5 minutes it will drop packets and timeout for roughly 10-15 seconds. Has anyone come across this or have any idea what it might be? This is running on a PE 2950 with dual processors with 16gb of memory and I believe the bulit in broadcom gb nics.
  The vmware host never drops any packets just the guests.
