Bandwidthd remove from 1.2.1 rc1 package list



  • bandwidthd does not work with rc1



  • What's your problem with bandwidthd?

    Mine was (and still is): From the GUI's Services menu, BandwidthD -> Access BandwidthD displays

    Please start bandwidthd to populate this directory.

    If I try to start bandwidthd from a ssh session:

    /usr/local/bandwidthd/bandwidthd /usr/local/bandwidthd/etc/bandwidthd.conf

    /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libpq.so.5" not found, required by "bandwidthd"

    find / -name 'libpq*'

    A couple of other people have also reported a missing library problem: libiconv.so.3 is missing. (I don't have that file on my system either.)



  • same problem

    
    Please start bandwidthd to populate this directory.
    
    


  • Maybe need define bandwidthd port for FreeBSD-7 in pkg_config.7.xml ?



  • I'm seeing the missing /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.3 but not libpq.so.5.

    wallabybob: can you post your bandwidthd.conf?



  • Here's my bandwidthd.conf

    $ cat /usr/local/bandwidthd/etc/bandwidthd.conf

    This file was automatically generated by the pfSense

    package management system.  Changing this file

    will lead to it being overwritten again when

    the package manage resyncs.

    Bandwidthd.conf

    Commented out options are here to provide

    documentation and represent defaults

    Subnets to collect statistics on.  Traffic that

    matches none of these subnets will be ignored.

    Syntax is either IP Subnet Mask or CIDR

    subnet 192.168.211.128/25

    Device to listen on

    Bandwidthd listens on the first device it detects

    by default.  Run "bandwidthd -l" for a list of

    devices.

    dev "rl0"

    Options that don't usually get changed

    An interval is 2.5 minutes, this is how many

    intervals to skip before doing a graphing run

    Graph cutoff is how many k must be transfered by an

    ip before we bother to graph it

    #Put interface in promiscuous mode to score to traffic
    #that may not be routing through the host machine.

    #Log data to cdf file htdocs/log.cdf

    #Read back the cdf file on startup

    #Libpcap format filter string used to control what bandwidthd see's
    #Please always include "ip" in the string to avoid strange problems

    #Draw Graphs - This default to true to graph the traffic bandwidthd is recording
    #Usually set this to false if you only want cdf output or
    #you are using the database output option.  Bandwidthd will use very little
    #ram and cpu if this is set to false.

    #Set META REFRESH seconds (default 150, use 0 to disable).

    Is libiconv.so.3 supposed to be in the install kit?  And libpq.so.5? I was originally using a 1.2 kit based on FreeBSD 6.3. I save the config file. Then I installed a "RC" kit from CD a few weeks ago, restored configuration from my previously saved file and since then have just used the full update a couple of times (update from Firmware item on System menu). Maybe tomorrow I'll save my configuration file again and do a full install from CD.



  • I did a full install from pfSense-20080820-2336.iso.gz and restored my saved configuration file and now bandwidthd works.
