Bug Description

I am seeing regular networking drops, these occur on a 10 minute repeating pattern. The issue does not always occur on every 10 minute boundary but any occurances are on that 10 minute boundary. This is a dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 network. The issue does not appear to be triggered by anything physical, as a number of machines are affected and trigger asyncronously from each other.

Each event starts with network manager saying the following:

May 17 16:29:13 chloe NetworkManager[1059]: <debug> [1337268553.691716] [nm-ip6-manager.c:898] process_nduseropt_rdnss(): (eth0): refreshing RA-provided nameserver 2001:470:20::2 (expires in 610 seconds)

Network connectivity is suspended during DHCP lease negotiation. This is ungood, yes, but not a big problem if the negotiation doesn't happen very often.

Part of the problem in your case is that your DHCP lease time is very short.

In my employer's network it's 250000 seconds.

Is it a bug that network connectivity is suspended during DHCP lease negotiation, or is that for some reason inevitable?

That was a duplicate of bug 993571; closing.
