We are running an automated test to check the Server performance using hp loadrunner. We see when we open 10 clients and all are actively performing some actions the server stops responding after 2hrs and even ping responses are not received by the server. The wire shark packets indicates the server all of a sudden RST some connection sometimes, and sometimes just doesn't respond. Please let me know what can be checked to solve the above problem.

If you can't ping the server after some time, one of the following things could have happened.

  • the IP stack of the server crashed (check the system logs)
  • the NIC driver of the server crashed. Probably hard to analyze
  • the swith shut down the port, beause of some DoS/flood protection (check the switch logs)
