    What happen about my pfsense ?



  • Can you try your NIC with em-drivers and test what happens?



  • I found some thing ..  cpu loading is high …but ....this firewall have no one on line (just a testing router).....and there is no install any other packegs on this firewall ....

  • high CPU is a symptom of the link cycling, the root cause is the link cycling. Figure out why you're cycling link, what are you plugged into, is there a cabling issue, NIC issue, something else going on there.



  • I had a similar issue with some on-board fxp interfaces. I found manually setting them for 100/full-duplex made them stable. It's worth a shot.

    ok  ,  i will try it later..

    but now , i turn off webConfigurator  Protocol (https) , to use http at pfsense…
    then the cpu loading is down....then the NIC is not going down anymore.....

    why ?



  • It's the opposite, the NIC isn't flapping, so the CPU usage goes down. It has nothing to do with whether you're using HTTP or HTTPS, that's a trivial difference in CPU.

    I really don't know.. but why the process```
    and [check_reload_status] is continuse high loading....

    soory .. cmb

    what resion would cause the NIC flapping ?



  • Figure out why you're cycling link, what are you plugged into, is there a cabling issue, NIC issue, something else going on there?

    check_reload_status and PHP have to do many things when link status changes. When it changes non-stop they have to do a lot of things non-stop, using a lot of CPU in the process.

    thanks a lot for cmb 
    I will try to find out the cycling link



  • This is a driver issue.
    Merge all posts from last 2 weeks and you will clearly see that:
    a) Cables are OK
    b) NICs are OK
    c) Switches are OK
    d) On some installs like mine there was no change other than pfsense snapshot update…

    Thanks a lot fot Greg ….

    last few days , I check the cables , NIC , Switches . It is really found nothing wrong . And the problem would happen at when I upgrape the kernel.
    So , I think , It is driver issue , really ! 
    Thanks~



  • I had the same problem off and on over this past week. I checked everything I could think of then I called my ISP, we ran a series of test and determined it was a bad NIC. I replaced the NIC and haven't had any problems since. Sometimes it's just a simple hardware problem.

  • Yes, but this is different case…
    There are a lot of reports lately about FXP NICs and not all of them have bad hardware...
    For bad HW I don`t need to call ISP, I can determine that by myself...
