I don't think I have to "prove" it.

Nobody forces you, but it has some advantages to do so.

I'm telling you what happens.

Please don't forget to make sure, i believe it.

I can't prove that the Sun is bright either. It

however... you can prove what's less brighter than the sun, by measuring two things in cl and tell me how. That's what i expect. If i already did it myself, i could compare our ways and learn...
What if the sun is 'BSD and another lightsource is Linux...

just is. You shouldn't get RX_OVERRUNS with a constant
traffic stream running at 60% usage, but you do. And if you do something in user-land, like a database lookup, it
gets worse, which also shouldn't happen. On BSD the lookup
will take a real long time, but you won't drop packets on the network interface. It can probably be tuned,

I'm really interested in some exact measures, because i didn't have the "luck" to encounter such a situation and could measure it myself.
