SLBD - core dump

  • Hello!
    I'm trying to configure outgoing loadbalancing between two LANs.
    I have two LAN networks:
    1-LAN1 - I will call it WAN because pfSense has on WAN NIC
    2-LAN2 - I'll call it LAN - pfSense has on LAN NIC

    I have 2 MySQL boxes and
    I want to connect to MySQL boxes from by connecting to
    LAN IP address of pfSense to port 3306.

    I have Load Balancer Pool - Type: Server with both MySQL servers IP and ports.
    I have virtual server port 3306 configured.

    I see in logs: pid 8104 (slbd), uid 0: exited on signal 6 (core dumped)

    Is what I'm trying to do not supported? What did I wrong?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.


  • Known problem we are trying to track down.

  • Please, let me know if I can help.

  • Absolutely.  Code is here:

    Compile with debugging, launch gdb and attach to new slbd and happy hunting.

  • I got an update to this situation from the original author.  Here it is:

    It turned out that you MUST specify Pool Down Server for SLBD.

    Even if you don’t want to redirect. GUI allows that field to be left empty.

    You probably need to change it so it will require some IP address to be there.

    Now my SLBD is up and running ;)

  • This was already fixed in HEAD at some point.  Sent you a patch to apply to RELENG_1.
