Why would pfsense show this on the traffic graph? Any one else seen this? Is it really dropping to zero or what do you think is going on? see screenshot1 (dip)
Details of my setup:
Dell 2650 (dual Xeon) 4GB RAM, 36GB SCSI RAID0 running pf 2.0 Release. See screenshot2 for more details.
It's a 32 bit counter which wraps pretty quickly at higher throughput, when it wraps it drops to 0. Throughput doesn't actually drop.
Whew. Tnx - is there a 64 bit counter that does not wrap out so quick?
Not on a 32 bit piece of hardware.
