LACP LAGG Poor Performance & Errors



  • Hi folks,

    I have a problem ive got a 4Gig LACP LAGG interface however the performance is bad until i enable Hardware Large Receive Offloading then i can get Gig Speeds across the VLANs 110mbps when disabled i only get around 55mbps but issue is when enabled and disabled i find the internet drops out then comes back on although WAN stays connected, another issue i have are Errors in and out, when i have Hardware Large Receive Offloading enable errors in and out stacks up but when disable the errors don't count up as bad.

    Hardware im using, Intel S1200BTLRM, 4GB RAM, Xeon 1220L v2. CPU is not maxed out. Using onboard and PCI-E HP NC360T for 4 Port Lagg. Cisco SG300-28. Virtualization Server is also the same hardware with 32GB of RAM and Xeon 1220 V2, Storage Server is also the same hardware Xeon 1220 v2, 32GB and loaded with disks. All Servers have 4Gig LAGG.

    Thanks.

    Jack.

    I assume you mean 110MBps/55Mbps (Mega Bytes per second) here?

    How are you testing? Do you see that same throttling on any type of test?

    Where are the errors you're seeing exactly?

  • Correct yes. This is on transfers using NFS.

    Errors in and out on the interface.

  • Netgate Administrator

    Try running netstat -i at the CLI to see errors on each interface in the lagg. You may have a bad link/NIC in there.

    That error count in not significant though. I doubt it's contributing to the issue.

    netstat -i

    Here is the output of netstat. looks like the issue is on em1?

  • Netgate Administrator

    Yes, possibly. Try disconnecting that or removing it from the lagg.

    851 is not a huge number though.



  • Errors seems to go when i remove the 4th Port, if i only assign 3 Ports it is fine i have tried different Network Cards and still the same problem. Ive tried a HP 364T on different hardware and tried different cabling still the same problem.

    FreeNAS and XCP-ng has 0 errors and have the same hardware.


  • Netgate Administrator

    Hmm, odd.

    Do you see the expected throughput when there are no errors?



  • Nope. i am limited to only 50 to 60mbps until i enable Hardware Large Receive Offloading then i can get way over 100mbps without any issues except errors then just stacks up and internet drops out when that is enabled.


  • Netgate Administrator

    I assume you are enabling LRO globally. It is actually added/removed from all the interfaces involved here?

    What does ifcofig -a show?

    Steve

    Yeah so no LRO on any em interface or on lagg0 or any VLAN on it.

    So what happens when you enable it? Which is pretty much never required normally.

    How does it fail?

    Steve



  • @stephenw10 if I enable it. I get great speeds 110mbps but after so long the Internet drops out then comes back up. WAN isn't disconnecting tho but with it disabled the Internet seems fine. When it is enabled the errors are Pilling up. What do you suggest?



  • The Errors have always happened I tried different hardware such as motherboards, cpus, ram etc and network cards but always had issues with error in and out on the Lagg.


  • Netgate Administrator

    Hmm, well I would first try to find why you lose the WAN. What actually happens at that point?

    Is it only WAN you lose?

    Steve



  • No. Everything on the network. Can't connect to webmail on my Mail Server which is on the same network when it happens. WAN is in a Vlan on the Lagg interface.


  • Netgate Administrator

    OK that sounds more like it's exhausting something. mbufs maybe. That would likely be shown on the console.

    It certainly should log something.



  • I set the mbufs to 10000 as recommended on the Tuning guide. So you think I should enable LRO then look at the logs?

    It is just strange when LRO is enabled the errors are just counting up.


  • Netgate Administrator



  • That is what I've done. Machine has 4gigs of RAM but only 35% is used.


  • Netgate Administrator

    And all NICs are still failing when LRO is enabled?

    You should try to find out what's actually failing when that happens.



  • I know it's not a hardware issue as I have tried different motherboards, with Cpus and network cards with different memory I have tried moving the Lagg ports on the switch to other ports and different cabling still the same issue.



  • Can you manually change the interface settings to full duplex in the GUI??

    I would like to see if that makes a difference.

    Run ifconfig -a afterwards



  • i only have these options.107462948_3180967368616488_4311461977511348016_o.jpg


  • Netgate Administrator

    You would need to set that on the parent interfaces. And that's tricky because you can't assign them when they're in a lagg. You could only do it using ifconfig directly.

    So you don't see any errors if you remove any one of the four links?

    If you have 3 links in the lagg and enable LRO does it still stop responding?

    Steve



  • I get no errors with only 3 Ports assigned to the LAGG. The issue with everything isnt a problem with LRO because it still happens when it is disabled. Something is seriously broken here i did update to the latest version of pfSense which is when this problem started happening with drop outs. When the drop outs happen VLANs are not reachable and the internet is not reachable everything drops out for a min or so then comes back on for a few hours and then drops out again but none of the links or WAN is dropping out.


  • LAYER 8 Netgate

    This post is deleted!


  • Not sure why you deleted your message. But the network cards i have here are the HP NC360T all Genuine the Quad NICs are the HP 364T and genuine. The onboard Ports are on the Intel Server Board.

    Update,

    Whether LRO is disabled or not the firewall becomes unresponsive on all its interfaces, LAGG is not accepting any packets. Cannot ping the Firewall or neither the VLANs although VLANs still work providing the Server and Client is on the same VLAN cross VLANs do not work, SplitDNS does not work so cant connect to Web Servers or Mail Servers. Local Domains do not work. This is a firewall problem can access the Servers on the same Subnet via its IP Address. This problem has started happening since updating to 2.4.5 i have also tried a reinstall and still the same issue, different hardware from network cards, boards, memory, Power Supplies etc but still the same problem.

    When drop outs occurs it is for a minute then comes back online. Strange thing is that if your on a skype call the call does not drop, if your playing a live tv stream from tvheadend that continues to play. Problem is on WIFI as well so not a client problem


  • Netgate Administrator

    I'm guessing that Derelict misread the output packets as idrops because the columns were all borked. 😉 I went back and tidied up the netstat output.

    If existing connections stay functioning but you cannot opem new ones that sounds more like exhausting the state table. Does it show anywhere near the limit?
    I would expect that too to be logged though. What exactly is shown in the system log when it fails and then comes back?

    Steve

    Update.

    Just done a fresh install and only connected only 2 Ports and still errors. Heres the output of netstat -i

  • @stephenw10 Which section of the System logs do you want the output of?



  • @stephenw10

    Another update.

    After a fresh install LRO doesnt make any affect to speed so i just disabled it and errors dont seem to be as frequent but still have errors.

    @VioletDragon said in LACP LAGG Poor Performance & Errors:

    @stephenw10 Which section of the System logs do you want the output of?

    The main system log for the time covering the event. Any sort of exhaustion would normally be logged there. Something must be logged if it fails to open new connections.

    Steve



  • will keep an eye out. will see how this fresh install goes.



  • @stephenw10 Hi Stephen, the problem has been solved by doing a fresh install of 2.4.5 P1 not having any dropouts but i am still getting errors on the LAGG but not as bad. Waiting for my 8GB DRR3 UDIMM ECC RAM to come then ill upgrade from 4GB. Cheers.



  • @stephenw10 this can be marked as solved

    Hi Stephen just a Update. Problem has been solved by doing a fresh install then a restore from backup file. Speed on the VLANs is also fixed and no more dropouts.

    Actually I'm getting better speeds than I ever did switching to this new hardware from a H81 system. Pays to have proper Server hardware.

    Cheers.

    Jack.
