Hello, I have a problem with the database on the server ( There are cases where the same records are duplicated to the database.

No.  Time      Source          Destination    Protocol Length Info
19   0.160086  TCP      60     [TCP Dup ACK 18#1] 443 → 56386 [ACK] Seq=156 Ack=551 Win=4930 Len=0

No.  Time       Source          Destination    Protocol Length Info
812  12.160016  TLSv1    91     [TCP Previous segment not captured] , Application Data

What could be the reason for these errors? Switcher or network card in the server?

It seems highly unlikely that the TCP symptoms you pasted have anything to do with duplicate records in the database. A duplicate ACK is just a message telling the other side that a packet hasn't been received when it should have, and "Previous segment not captured" means that a packet is missing. TCP connections transport data reliably (or fail completely, after retrying without success), but it doesn't duplicate anything when it comes to the actual application payload.

Having programmed database applications myself I am reasonably sure that the problem is somewhere in the database/application logic, not the network That would mean that switches and network cards are not to blame for this.
