Traffic shaping flakey, Status -> Queues not loading



  • Hey folks,

    Using snapshot 1410 from today October 1st, I was able to configure the traffic shaper by removing the RED tags in each queue (and the dedicated links wizard wasn't creating all the proper WAN queues so I added those manually as well).
    I have some hiccups on my VoIP calls when I run a bandwidth speed test when I start and finish the upload portion. I'm trying to see queue status to better monitor what's going on, but the queue status is not loading. Whenever I go to the Status -> Queues page, the bars do not load, and the system web server stops responding for at least 60 seconds even if I close the page and try to log back on to the webGUI. After a while (60 to 120 seconds) the web servers starts loading pages again.

    Tested on IE7, Firefox 2, Firefox 3, Safari 3…
    What's up?



  • Just wanted to confirm that this bug is still here.

    Using 1.3-ALPHA-ALPHA
    built on Mon Oct 6 22:00:43 EDT 2008.  Status-> Queues only loads the first queue, then hangs.  Also, the wizard for multi-wan kills the configuration, and I had to reinstall completely to get back into my box.



  • Did the Status->Queues lock your browser ?

    about the multiwan wizard they function normally they just need red be removed from the config(for now) but i will take care of that.

    Yea, I browsed farther back in this forum and saw that disabling red from each and every queue fixes it.  The status-> queues doesn't lock the browser.  Status bar says transferring from xx.xx.xx.xx, but the web server on the pfsense box hangs until you close status-> queues and wait about a minute.  Is there a debug log I can activate/see?

    I thought it might be the wizard, so I manually configured a traffic shaper config with only a few queues, and that still made the web server hang.

    I've also started with a fresh installation of the same release, still got the same problem.



  • I have the same problem.  Sometimes when viewing queues I get locked out of the webUI for a few minutes.  This appears to be a bug with pfSense, and has been around for a while.



  • Status -> Queues is now fixed so you can use it.



  • How many queques can we use in 2.0 ?
