RRD Graph generator stopped recording?

  • Hello,

    I've had my pfSense box up and running perfectly for the past week or so.

    I have derived a lot of enjoyment from looking at my RRD graphs off late  ;D

    So I fired up my browser and navigated to the RRD graph page, only to be greeted with this -

    For some indiscernible reason, the data has stopped registering on the graph after midnight (see 48 hour graph)

    Any ideas why?

    I haven't made any changes to the box, it just started happening all by itself.

    Any help appreciated

  • The sytem log will tell you a little bit more.
    Can you confirm that you will find (at least) these items:

    Sep 14 08:41:13 php: : Creating rrd graph index
    Sep 14 08:41:13 php: : Creating rrd update script

    Can you confirm (with the help of ps -A | grep rrd | grep -v grep) that the update script is running ?

  • After clicking on the RRD graph link, I see this in the system log section:


    $ ps -A | grep rrd | grep -v grep

  • Strange, noting to see in the Systemlog ??  didn't know what one could shut this down.

    More strange, look at this

    ps -A | grep rrd | grep -v grep

    9146  ??  SN     0:02.19 /bin/sh /var/db/rrd/updaterrd.sh

    The only thing that should be there permanently is this script file. It's sleeping most of the time, and wakes up every minute to run some rrd tools.

    In your case, it looks like the php webinterface is hanging.

    Better save your config - and do a fresh install.
