• Hi!
    I just had a crash…
    I sent crash report from my box 2 minutes ago.
    Can someone please check it out and let me know what went wrong?

    I have no crash file, I deleted it after sending...

    Many thanks!

    Could be BIOS/ACPI or clock related ("tc" in this case is timecounter)

    Though I would seriously start to doubt the hardware if this is happening randomly and it worked fine before.

  • Huh OK, this is first time this happened…
    Probably old HW...

  • Hi!

    Just one more question…
    If this happens again, is there a way that pfsense would automatically reboot itself?


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Normally it will automatically reboot itself after such a crash.

    Are you on NanoBSD? Or a full install?

  • I`m on full install, when this happened, firewall did not rebooted itself unfortunatley…

  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Did you install from iso/memstick or OVA?
    Did you do a custom install?

    The only way it might have not rebooted is if you didn't make any swap space for the crash dumps, though it should be doing that either way.

  • Huh I installed from ISO, it was full default install on 80GB disk…

  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Custom install or a quick/easy install?

    What does this show?

    sysctl debug.ddb

  • Ummm it just happened again jimp!
    1 week almost preciese timing and my box is locked again.
    oh crap :S

    I have to come home from work, then I`ll be able to see output of those commands…

    I have pppoe connection and another Hyper-V pfsense VM....
    Can I do a redundant situation in case of HW is locked up like now?


  • Maybe it has nothing to do with your problem, but haven't you set RAM disks? (System->Advanced->Miscellanous : RAM Disk Settings (Reboot to Apply Changes) ) ?

  • I have just submitted new crash log for inspection…

  • Hi guys!

    It was borked MB. I tried to upgrade to latest version and it borked kernel as well…  I had non bootable HDD, I replaced everything
    managed to rescue config.xml and now I`m up and running again :)

    I have just one question though...
    I rescued config.xml, can I somehow rescue RRD graph data too?
    I have old HDD which is working OK but new system is now on other HDD...


  • They are in /var/db/rrd

  • Thanks gogol!

    Do I just copy/paste to new HDD and thats it?


  • You will overwrite what was created of course

  • It turned out that motherboard was to blame…
    From 4 on-board ports 2 were giving me send/receive errors...
    I bought new system with intel d2500cce which should last longer that this one (2 yrs)...

    Thanks all!
