Hello. We have a firewall here (Checkpoint FW 1), installed on a RH 6.2

Every week or so, the FW logs this error : dst cache overflow
and the routing stops.

Is changing the value of /proc/sys/net/ipv4/route (actually set to 4096) a way to prevent this ? OR is this a kernel bug with this 2.2.16 realease ?

I CAN'T change the kernel, nor the distro, as the whole is under contract ... and validated for this exact combination :(

Yann Dupont.
