Subject: Some nodes have higher frame values in ifconfig

Hello,

I am running a cluster consisting of 22 nodes.
(22 nodes under the same 1Gbps switch.)
I noticed some nodes in the cluster has higher frame value
in ifconfig like the following.

some nodes (higher frame):
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 90:B1:1C:09:D2:F8 
          inet addr:192.168.121.20  Bcast:192.168.121.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          inet6 addr: fe80::92b1:1cff:fe09:d2f8/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:643150667 errors:0 dropped:790 overruns:0 frame:280072
          TX packets:908361364 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:377424658828 (351.5 GiB)  TX bytes:864099883266 (804.7 GiB)
          Interrupt:170 Memory:d91a0000-d91b0000 


other nodes (lower frame):
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 24:B6:FD:F6:DF:34  
          inet addr:192.168.121.3  Bcast:192.168.121.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          inet6 addr: fe80::26b6:fdff:fef6:df34/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:1126524649 errors:0 dropped:118 overruns:0 frame:43775
          TX packets:847071691 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:992080311726 (923.9 GiB)  TX bytes:385366462299 (358.9 GiB)
          Interrupt:170 Memory:d91a0000-d91b0000 


What might be wrong with it ?
I also ran ethtool and
"rxbds_empty" value is the same value as frame in ifconfig.
whta is rxbds_empty ?
I have investigated rxbds_empty, but there is almost no information about it.

The weird thing is newly added 6 nodes have that higher value.
Also, I noticed some program runs slower than before we added those 6 nodes. 
What the program is doing is that 
every node requests huge amount of short messages
to other random nodes in parallel.
Ideally, every node has the some completion time with the program,
but the added 6 nodes run slower than others.

Could anyone give me any advice ?
