Bandwidthd, nothing to display!!!



  • hi, im using    Available 1.0.1-SNAPSHOT-02-27-2007 and have installed bandwidthd package, but allway say nothing to display. Is there have to configure something special or how i have to configure?

  • but, i can't understand

    dmesg | grep -i ethernet

    fxp0: <intel 100="" 82801ba="" cam="" (ich2="" 3)="" pro="" ethernet="">port 0x7840-0x787f mem 0xfebff000-0xf
    ebfffff irq 20 at device 8.0 on pci1

    This come with the motherboard

    dmesg | grep -i xl0

    xl0: <3Com 3c905C-TX Fast Etherlink XL> port 0x7880-0x78ff mem 0xfebfef80-0xfebfefff irq
    17 at device 9.0 on pci1

    This is Pci card added

    both card are supported by freeBsd.

    So where can i find information for especific card suported by bandwidthd. Im was looking for that on bandwidthd site but they dont have information about unsupported card.

    Im not expert on freebsd, but maybe is something bad configured on my pfsense server. Is that could be true where can i look for that.

    Very Thanks for your response and future information.

  • Reread the ENTIRE thread.  We go over why certain cards are not supported in great detail!



  • thanks for replay very fast, its working now.

    only for record, i added following intructions …

    Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
        following line in /boot/loader.conf(5):

    if_tx_load="YES"

    and zorry, i read all the tread, but im was thinking that "not my card"

    Really thanks for you response, now is working.



  • @sullrich:

    Sullrich, im having a half-similar problem.

    I can get it working fine (though oddly with no graphs) on when the LAN interface selected. but not the WAN.

    I thought it was…as you say, just a card issue. So i swapped the cars i was using for LAN and WAN over, so now the LAN card which worked is now the WAN card and vice versa....

    ...but guess what?....WAN still gives teh no data error, but when i change the dropdown box back to LAN...it works again.

    SO both cards seem to work...but only when monitoring the LAN interface.

    Am i missing somethign here?

    thanks



  • Sounds like a bandwidthd bug.  This application is quite buggy and I am still waiting for a response from the author.

    Okay, thanks. Oh well. I really wanted a program like this, as i dont know how to install 3rd party apps yet so one that is in Package form was my only hope. hehe.



  • I don't know if it'll work for you but I had the same problem with bandwidthd until I enabled device polling.



  • @Krusty:

    I don't know if it'll work for you but I had the same problem with bandwidthd until I enabled device polling.

    That is strange.  That makes it almost sound like a FreeBSD specific issue.



  • Now works for me with the latest snap shot



  • I had a similar issue: nothing to graph… the bandwidthd log files log.1.0.cdf, log.2.0.cdf... were empty.
    I switch my WAN interface from DHCP to fixed ip and voila it started to graph.

    Now i'm looking for a way to add multiple subnet in bandwidthd config by using pfsense xml config... anyone did this?
