Traffic Graphs widget does not work on the Dashboard

  • Hi,

    Traffic Graphs widget worked great on the Dashboard, but after defining 25 VLAN interfaces in pfSense it stopped working and showing any traffic. At the same time under Status->Traffic Graph traffic is shown on every interface correctly, but when I go to Dashboard nothing is happening on the Traffic Graphs.
    After some reboot of pfSense the Traffic Graphs widget starts working for some time but most of the time it shows 0 b/s.
    It seems like the Traffic Graphs widget has some problems with bigger amount of VLAN interfaces present and stops working.

    Has anyone seen such a problem?

    Thanks for help!

    I have the same symptom : "Traffic Graphs" don't show any traffic; however I don't have any VLAN defined.
    Here's how it happened for me:
    -> I run 2.4.4-RELEASE-p2 (amd64) on ESXI on a Supermicro X10SDV-6C+-TLN4F/64G RAM.

    -> I was chatting with people online and all of a sudden I lost connection. Couldn't reach the internet, only local sites were reachable.
    I rebooted the pfsense VM and it worked for a few minutes and froze again. Rebooted, looked through the logs, could not find anything suspicious.
    I stopped pfBlockerNg-devel 2.2.5_22 and rebooted the VM. This seem to have fixed the internet access pb, however, the "Traffic graphs" no longer show any traffic.
    Reboot doesn't help, restarting php processes doesn't help.

  • I had a similar situation after upgrading to 2.4.4._3, where my Traffic Graphs on multiple sites would not start/would not diplay any bandwidth. I'd see 1 dot of Zero and then the graph would not update and further. I tried rebooting, and editing the graph by removing all and saving and then adding them all back and saving, but no change.

    I then tried to add JUST WAN. That graph works now! I tried adding them one by one, and saving after each. They are all workign now. This might be a solution. There must be an array that gets reset to zero or something, and adding one to the array sequentially allows it to udpate them all (eventually). Oo my main site I can only add 6 graphs (my other sites have only 6 interfaces ), so myabe there is a 6 limit not (Intential or otherwise).


  • @cerberus128 This is exactly what I have found. I wish I had came across this thread sooner!

    I am running the same version and found that if more than 6 interfaces are added, it breaks the graphs as well.
