Hi there,

We're currently experiencing problems with one of our web apps that POSTS data, but then return the same page. After doing a packet capture of the process, I've noticed the following:
1) Wireshark shows quite allot of packets with TCP checksum errors.
2) I also see some IP header checksum errors.
3) I can see the POST packet as the first segment of a PDU, but the next segment seems to get lost. Wireshark says [TCP previous segment lost].

If I do a "netstat -s -P tcp" I get:
TCP     tcpRtoAlgorithm     =     4     tcpRtoMin           =   400
        tcpRtoMax           = 60000     tcpMaxConn          =    -1
        tcpActiveOpens      =339862     tcpPassiveOpens     =1763983

        tcpInUnorderSegs    = 20161     tcpInUnorderBytes   =17992747
        tcpInDupSegs        =  4487     tcpInDupBytes       =1430951
        tcpInPartDupSegs    =   614     tcpInPartDupBytes   =302318
        tcpInPastWinSegs    =     2     tcpInPastWinBytes   =1337682269
        tcpInWinProbe       =     0     tcpInWinUpdate      =    20
        tcpInClosed         = 15304     tcpRttNoUpdate      =566771
        tcpRttUpdate        =31381910   tcpTimRetrans       =193480
        tcpTimRetransDrop   =  2902     tcpTimKeepalive     = 13991
        tcpTimKeepaliveProbe=   134     tcpTimKeepaliveDrop =     0
        tcpListenDrop       =     0     tcpListenDropQ0     =     0
        tcpHalfOpenDrop     =     0     tcpOutSackRetrans   =125101

From the above output I see a high number of tcpRetransSegs and  tcpInUnorderSegs.

My question is basically, what does this indicate? A network error like a DUPLEX mismatch?

This is a hosted solution, so I unfortunately dont have physical access to the network equipment. Any ideas welcome.

Thanks,

Jason
