Err Msg: Received Source Quench is the Number of ICMP...


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


If Internet Protocol (IP) packets arrive at a node too quickly for it to handle, the following error message may appear in the Event Log:

Received Source Quench is the number of ICMP Source Quench messages received.

The flow control mechanism in IP is the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Source Quench message. In effect, when IP packets arrive too quickly for a node to handle, it can send a Source Quench message, which essentially tells the source of the packets to back off. The Event Viewer is stating that this has occurred. This message should not be considered a problem.
