Last Build (pfSense-Full-Update-1.0.1-SNAPSHOT-02-09-2007.tgz) screws gmirrors

  • My pfsense installation has been modified to run on a raid1 gmirror configuration.

    I've upgraded my master pfsense installation to the last build and i had serious mirror errors like:

    ad*: TIMEOUT - WRITE_DMA retrying (1 retry left) LBA=*
    ad*: TIMEOUT - READ_DMA retrying (1 retry left) LBA=*

    causing bad slowdowns in pfsense performance (even in the web gui) for disk write and read timeouts.

    it's certainly something regarding the freebsd kernel, but since i read online it could be related to the kernel configuration (preemption?) i'm wondering if you changed something on that front from the build i had installed (pfSense-Full-Update-1.0.1-SNAPSHOT-01-24-2007.tgz) to the last one.

    thanks in advance!!


  • Yeah it snuck back in during testing.  I've removed it and started a new batch of snapshot builds.
