  Dropped packets on EC2, "xen_netfront: xennet: skb rides the rocket: x

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on EC2, we see a lot of the following in the
  kernel log:

      xen_netfront: xennet: skb rides the rocket: 19 slots

  Each of these messages corresponds to a dropped TX packet, and
  eventually causes our application's connections to break and timeout.

  The problem appears when network load increases. We have Node.js
  processes doing pubsub with a Redis server, and these are most visibly
  affected, showing frequent connection loss. The processes talk to each
  other using the private addresses EC2 allocates to the machines.

  Notably, the default MTU on the network interface seems to have gone
  up from 1500 on 13.10, to 9000 in 14.04 LTS. Reducing the MTU back to
  1500 seems to drastically reduce dropped packets. (Can't say for
  certain if it completely eliminates the problem.)

  The machines we run are started from ami-896c96fe.
