[OpenIndiana-discuss] Problem with high cpu load (oi_151a)

Wow, that was fast :)

However, the NIC integrated on the Intel DG965WHMKR mainbord is an Intel 
82566DC according to the device driver utility, the reported driver 
e1000g. Isn't the bge driver for Broadcom NICs?

And what do you mean by "the other nvidia based interface"? This 
mainboard has only this one integrated network interface mentioned 
above, no pieces of nvidia hardware anywhere, as far as I can see...

Nevertheless it could be worth to try a different network driver. 
However, as I mentioned in my previous post, my know-how concerning unix 
is very limited. Where can I find an alternative driver for the Intel 
82566DC interface and how do I install it?

Anyway, thanks for your quick response! :)
