Is a large drop count in qDefault on LAN normal?
I just implemented my traffic shaper as per http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,22119.0.html. However looking at the Status: Traffic Shaper: Queues I see qDefault on LAN at 1350/pps, 22Mb/s, 0 borrows, 0 suspends and 10980 drops. This is in 5 minutes time. Is this normal? I currently have almost no LAN traffic to the firewall except the pfsense admin browser session.
I am wondering the same thing. It sure doesn't make sense to be dropping packets like crazy!
You can increase queue length to avoid that.
Just be aware that it might impat latency. Values until 500 or more should be normal depending on speed.
I'm seeing the same thing. LAN interface set to 100Mb, child queue qInternet set to 22Mb (ISP speed) and dDefault with bandwidth %. Downloads come in at around 12-14Mb with shaping turned on, 22Mb with it turned off.
I see drops also incrementing on the queues page. Where would the queue length be adjusted?
