But it seems something is wrong because when network load becomes high I get :

Jul  4 23:01:19 dada1 kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
Jul  4 23:01:19 dada1 kernel: tg3: eth0: transmit timed out, resetting
Jul  4 23:01:24 dada1 kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
Jul  4 23:01:24 dada1 kernel: tg3: eth0: transmit timed out, resetting
Jul  4 23:01:29 dada1 kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out


Does this happen without changing the coalescing settings
at all?


Not easy to answer because I have to rebuild a kernel and reboot. Will do that 
shortly.
