Thanks to Casper Dik and Sandwich Maker who responded. They suggested to use
netstat to detect overflow at the input buffer and snoop to inspect
particular packets. Unfortunately these techniques proved unhelpful to
actually determine current queue status. It seems that I hit a hard one this
time, I'll have to continue searching...

thanks to all
