We had again a network outage from the network card.
I contacted Oracle (old Sun Microsystems) to find out why there is no more a network connectivity with the e1000 driver on OpenSolaris.
They are investigating (I hope) on this problem.

Me too. My Hosting service refused me to provide a e1000 Card with another chipset.
They have only VIA or e1000 Desktop Network Cards.

I just wrote a gateway heartbeat daemon which checks now the availability of the next gateway.
If there is no connectivity, the server reboots automatically.
There should be no more outages which takes more than 5-10 minutes.
Additionally I asked Oracle to investigate if there is a problem with the e1000 network driver.

Thank you for your time and care.
Still I hope you get to the bottom of this and solve it once and for all.

Again an outage of 2 hours: The heartbeat script detected the network failure at 18:15:00 CET time.
I'm currently investigating why auto-reboot failed.

No problem: The script has been repaired.
By the way: Oracle investigates now if the bug comes from TCP/IP module from the OS.
