BGP notification hold time expired

Hi,
I have 2 eBGP peers over a 64k leased line. One of the peers, say router A 
periodically sends a BGP notification of "hold time expired" to the other 
peer router B and it appears to happen quite randomly.
Whenever this happened, on router B i could actually see a syslog message 
saying:
"BGP-3-NOTIFICATION: received from neighbor <router A's IP> 4/0 (hold time 
expired) 0 bytes"
Does this indicate that the link is actually not down (since router B 
received the BGP notification from A)? How then, could router A have missed 
3 consecutive keepalives that router B sent?

I've checked the timers, and the peers negotiated the keepalive to be 10 
seconds, holdown time to be 30 seconds; nothing out of the ordinary here.

Any suggestions?

TIA.

64k?  Could it be that your BGP updates are swamping that line?

Hmm . .. good point there.
My debug shows that there's not much else happening after the BGP session 
establishment. There're only a few routes exchanged after BGP session open. 
It's only keepalives and some minor BGP housekeeping traffic thereafter.

Could it be that the actual application data delaying BGP keepalives and 
when tcp is timed out consistently, the peer thinks that it's dead? I might 
have to look into QOS to prioritize the BGP traffic.

Individual slice times
I'm seeing that the individual slice time information from the Private_0019= _1029 field of the DICOM header has negative values and sometime only posit= ive values.

Evolution: notification of new email
Hi, I run Evolution 2.0.4 (on Mandriva LE 2005), having upgraded from 1.something. I am used to being alerted to new emails by the program icon showing "2" (for 2 new emails) on the bottom of my screen (on the "Panel icon" I guess you could call it). However, I seem to be unable to attain this in 2.0.4. All I can do is to play sound upon arrival of new mail, which i certainly don't want. Is there a way I can get Evolution to show new emails in the "Panel icon" or the Taskbar? Thanks for your time, JA ...

Query times and recursive-clients
Hi, I have v9.4.2 running on Linux and I'm seeing a bunch of messages in my mail logs like the following: reject: RCPT from unknown[xxx.217.8.156] Trying to later resolve this IP returns a valid hostname, so I'm concerned that there is perhaps a timeout value that is too low for my system, which may be overloaded at times, or some other limit is being reached that may impact results. What can I use to determine if this is even actually a problem? I don't see anything peculiar in the logs, and memstats looks pretty uneventful. Is there some other stats that I sh...

Is it Time to Cut the Cords on Directory Assistance?
By Bruce Mohl, Globe Staff Is it time to deregulate directory assistance? The idea may be heresy here in Massachusetts, where state lawmakers have granted residential customers 10 free directory assistance calls a month. But with the price of directory assistance rising to unheard-of levels and regulation stifling innovation, maybe it's time to try something different. Western European countries began deregulating directory assistance in the late 1990s, requiring consumers to select a provider rather than ceding the business to the customer's phone company. Results ...

a unix script to send email notification when a sas batch job fails?
Hi, any enlightened SAS soul "SAS 9.1 Companion for UNIX Environments" states that: "an Exit Status Code can be used to determine the Completion Status of a SAS Job in UNIX Environments." and "The exit status for the completion of a SAS job is returned in $status for the C shell, and in $? for the Bourne and Korn shells. A value of 0 indicates normal termination." So I'm wondering if this information could be used to write a short simple unix script which is able to do the following 2 things: 1, invoke a sas job in batch mode 2, send me an email if this s...

Time Machine strategy
I haven't set up Time Machine yet, but plan to use a 300gig one to back up my 200gig MacBook Pro. I also have an eMac with a 40gig drive.

So, time to back to work. Story about my vocation.
After taking a month break next week I have to back to work. I've had a little travel with my family in the past month, and believe it or not, I never thought i could be so happy. We travelled to Asia, spent 1 week in Japan, 2 weeks in China and few days in Korea and Thailand. The first thing I want to mention is, trust me, original Chinese food is much delicious than those who served in China Town. They are much much much more delicious! I ate so many different food in that week, so awesome! As to Japan, well, the most special thing in my opinion it's their video...

ode45 time question
Hi, I am solving an ODE with a loop in it, and I was hoping someone could help me out. How exactly does matlab update the time when running ODE45? I ask because I have a while loop running within the ODE solver. Will the time get updated each time through the loop, or only once the loop os exited? for clarity's sake: function ydot = function(t,y) statements while (this is true) do this update end will the time get updated each time the while loop is repeated (i.e. within the loop)? I need it to because I have time dependent statements in the loop. Thanks for your help. -Gabi...
