[THIN] Re: Network Optmization : Output queue length very high

Hey

Don't know if this will help. But had a meeting with Dell the other day and 
they acknowledged that there is/was a known problem with Teaming Broadcom nics 
in the Dell servers. Apparantly there is an updated driver that should fix the 
problem.

But it could be unrelated.

Cheers

Cherie
