Anyone running outgoing load balancing + SMP??



  • Please let me know if the process "slbd" uses more than normal processor usage.

    Run "top" from a shell and periodically check to see if slbd is consuming > 40% cpu.

    Thanks



  • I have slbd running in failover (not balance) config on a quad E5310, top shows 0.0%.
    I can test a balance set-up if you think it may be different.

    When running 1.2 I remember that slbd would often show 25% cpu (I think that's one core at 100%).
    I have never noticed this in 1.2.1.

    I haven't managed to catch it "in the act" yet, but I suspect that the interface flapping I'm seeing follows a phenomenon that results in system utilization spiking up to 70%-ish for a very short period of time.  Those utilization peaks seem to occur at or near the times that my interfaces are flapping due to failing the ping test.  There is absolutely no reason for that kind of utilization since I'm only pushing about 3mbits in/out over 2 load balanced 1.5mbit links.

    Cheers,
