FreeBSD 6.2-RC1 #0: Thu Nov 16 05:12:08 UTC 2006
root@opus.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SMP

light ethernet traffic works great.
heavy use (rsync driving nfs activity) and the
error message appears:

kernel: nve0: failed to allocate memory

also appearing in the log message:
kernel: nve0: device timeout (64)


an fxp0 device works without error in the identical
circumstance/application.

other info:
CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+ (2410.99-MHz
686-class CPU)
gigabyte motherboard

kernel: nve0: port
0xb000-0xb007 mem 0xf5105000-0
xf5105fff irq 22 at device 20.0 on pci0


any thoughts ?

thanks!
