    Packets getting lost during SNAT with too many connections

    We have a problem with SNAT with too many connections using the
    same source and destination on the network nodes.

    In addition we can see in the conntrack table that the who
    "instert_failed" increases.

    This might be a generic problem with conntrack and linux.
    We suspect that we encounter the following "limitation / bug"
    in the kernel.

    There seems to be a workaround to alleviate this behavior by
    setting the -random-fully flag in iptables for port consumption.

    This patch fixes the problem by adding the --random-fully to
    the SNAT rules.
