I had random network loss last year when I started this position and when I
monitored the network, it was ARP floods. Turns out my switches had multiple
routes... ie: the cables in the back were connected to make the 3 of them act
as "one unit" AND the uplink cables on ALL 3 were connected to the central
switch! Oops, what a mess that caused. I've been great ever since pulling
those cables out of the back of the switches. Hope you find a solution!
