PfSense repeatedly crashing :(



  • Hi guys,

    I'm getting repeated crashes on my PfSense box and it's starting to drive me nuts, even though most of the time the machine just reboots itself.

    Here's the crash dump, hoping someone can decipher what everything means : https://ybin.me/p/361524aff702bf46#p7JzpQfLEN/AccSLqzHrDcPyTh1mtwrBoTx2MHQ4JZc=

    I've done what I could in terms of fsck but nothing seems to be fixing these crashes…

    Here's the specs (only used for home):
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8500 @ 3.16GHz
    RAM : 2GB
    NIC : Intel Dual 1GBPS
    HDD : 140GB

    Thanks in advance!



  • according to your log, you have 2 intel and 1 realtek network adapter.

    try adding

    kern.cam.boot_delay=10000
    kern.ipc.nmbclusters=1000000
    legal.intel_ipw.license_ack=1
    legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1
    hw.re.enable_msix=0
    hw.em.enable_msix=0
    hw.pci.enable_msix=0
    
    

    and if that does not help, also add

    net.inet.tcp.tso=0
    hw.em.fc_setting=0
    hw.re.fc_setting=0

    Hi Birke, many thanks for your reply!

    I'll give those settings a try, I guess I just add it to the loader.conf?

    PS: The realtek adapter is just a standard one that's on the motherboard. Not currently using it, however I may use it in the future.

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately the problem seems to still occur. Although a lot less, I noticed something though```

    Both NIC's look like they've got IRQ 17? Could this be it?
