Greetings all! Quick question about the performance and responsiveness of the Web GUI on 2.4.5
I just built a new and rather beefy pfSense box (8 core CPU, 32GB RAM, Flash storage) and I am directly connected to it with an ethernet cable as I set it up.
I am experiencing significant delays (up to a minute per action) as I edit the configuration. For example, I am setting up my VLANs right now and just applied a change. It literally took 62 seconds for it to bring me back to the Interfaces page.
Is this normal? If so, I sure hope this box routes packets faster than it responds to commands...
If not, what settings should I be looking at to improve the responsiveness of it? This is rather frustrating.
Don't understand why you have this issue, but even the tiny VM in my sig running on a 12 year old quad core changes screens in about 2-3 seconds. Are you running 2.4.5 or 2.4.5_p1? 2.4.5 had problems with multi-core.

Sounds like maybe you enabled the option to kill states on gateway failure and one of your gateways is flagged as being down.
When your state gets cleared, it takes a while for your browser to realize this and open a new connection.
If you close your browser window and open it again and reconnect immediately, or open a second different browser (like Chrome vs FF) and it comes right up, then it's almost certainly a states issue.
Actually, I figured it out! But, thanks for your help!
I was configuring my new pfSense box offline, and there is a known bug in 2.4.5 where there can be 30-90 second delays when offline. This has since been patched and corrected in 2.4.5-p1
Again, thanks to everyone for their help. I REALLY appreciate it!
