RRD Quality Graph Only Updates Every 5 Minutes?
I had a drive bug out on me, so I had to re-install and restore from a backup config (also from a 2.1 version, probably from last week). So now I am running a snapshot from yesterday:
built on Wed May 22 09:24:51 EDT 2013
Now the RRD quality graph on the GUI only updates every 5 minutes, while it used to do it every minute. I am not running an embedded kernel, just the standard one. Is there a way to get it back to every minute?
/var/run/apinger.status is updated about every 5 seconds, and /var/db/rrd/WAN_DHCP-quality.rrd is updated about every minute. I found where I think it puts the actual graph files (/tmp/WAN_DHCP-quality.rrd-8hour.png), and that seems to get updated about every minute also
I see an the following seemingly rrd-related processes running:
#> ps aux | grep rrd
root 25833 0.0 0.1 14384 2324 ?? IN 9:03AM 0:00.01 rrdtool -
root 57033 0.0 0.0 8296 1840 v0- IN 9:03AM 0:00.03 /bin/sh /var/db/rrd/updaterrd.sh
Any ideas what else I can check? Did something change related to this? The other RRD graphs (traffic and processor) seem to be updated every minute. I tried resetting my RRD data but that didn't help.
Warning - The following rrdtool commands will reset the gateway quality RRD and all existing data will be lost.
Apinger sets the gateway quality RRD's like this. Which is not consistent with the other pfSense RRD's.
rrdtool create /var/db/rrd/WAN_DHCP-quality.rrd \ DS:loss:GAUGE:600:0:100 \ DS:delay:GAUGE:600:0:100000 \ RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:600 \ RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:6:700 \ RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:24:775 \ RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:288:796 \
To make the gateway quality RRD's consistent with the other pfSense RRD's, you might try this:
rrdtool create /var/db/rrd/WAN_DHCP-quality.rrd \ --step 60 \ DS:loss:GAUGE:120:0:100 \ DS:delay:GAUGE:120:0:100000 \ RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:1000 \ RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:5:1000 \ RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:60:1000 \ RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:720:3000 \
Replace "WAN_DHCP" with the target gateway's name.
