Description Mihail Vovk 2008-03-24 22:00:07 UTC
 I use FreeBSD as SOFT-router with: ipfw for firewall and ipnat for nat.

It is just kernel panic at any time, also without big load of the router.

My kernel specific options for ipfw (without IPDIVERT was the same picture).
options         HZ=4000
options         IPFIREWALL
options         IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE
options         IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE_LIMIT=100
options         IPFIREWALL_FORWARD
options         IPDIVERT
device          vlan

I have also 2 same server with configuration:
 - motherboard P5K-VM Asus
 - CPU Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     E6850  @ 3.00GHz (3005.57-MHz 686-class CPU)

First server have 1Gb memory with bus 800, second 2Gb with bus 1066.

First server works great and without any problems. Second servers have kernel panic 10 time per evening.

change DDR2-1066 to something early manufactured
 Use 1066-memory DDR2 memory chips instead with lower bus.

This is not an em(4) issue as far as I can see.  If this is still testable and occurs with the 10.2r release, please open a new detailed ticket.
