Pfsense 2.1 and 2.1.2 Traffic Shaping Wizard Bug?



  • Hi,

    I noticed this on 2.1, updated to 2.1.2 and the same happens.

    Used the traffic shaping wizard (1 lan 2 wan), selected 2 connections, set Wan1 20Mb Upload / 40 Mb Down, wan2 20Mb Up, 60Mb down.

    Enabled VoIP prioritizing, 2Mb up each, 10Mb Down, no penalty box, enabled lowering the p2p priority, selected all protocols, no p2p catchall, enabled raise games priority, selected all.

    Selected Raise or lower other Applications, leave as is.

    Upon applying changes, error notice is shown in notification area, [ There were error(s) loading the rules: pfctl: the sum of the child bandwidth higher than parent root_em0 - The line in question reads [0]: ] Status -> Queues says "No data".

    I'd swear the first time I did it no notification was shown.

    pfctl -n -f /tmp/rules.debug:

    bandwidth for qInternet higher than interface
    /tmp/rules.debug:134: errors in queue definition
    parent qInternet not found for qACK
    /tmp/rules.debug:135: errors in queue definition
    parent qInternet not found for qP2P
    /tmp/rules.debug:136: errors in queue definition
    parent qInternet not found for qVoIP
    /tmp/rules.debug:137: errors in queue definition
    parent qInternet not found for qGames
    /tmp/rules.debug:138: errors in queue definition
    parent qInternet not found for qOthersHigh
    /tmp/rules.debug:139: errors in queue definition
    parent qInternet not found for qOthersLow
    /tmp/rules.debug:140: errors in queue definition

    In fact qInternet shows 104857.6 Kbits (more than 100Mbit, which is the link speed of that interface albeit being gigabit)

    I searched the forum and it seems this bug was already in 2.0. Should I file a bug? I tried the wizard on another system with  dual wan (one 20Mb the other 2Mb) without problems.

    On the "buggy" system I'm also using limiters.



  • Tried again and now it works fine.

    The only thing that changed meanwhile was the LAN NIC, an intel gigabit, didn't negotiate gigabit speeds before due to a cabling problem; fixed the cabling, got it to negotiate gigabit, tried the shaper again and tada…

    We've seen that happen before as well, but it's not really a bug per se, it's reporting correctly that the shaper was set for bandwidth higher than it had a link speed to support.



  • It makes all the sense… tried to edit the post subject but didn't find how!

    Ive just upgrade from 2.2.1 to 2.2.3 and getting this as an alert "There were error(s) loading the rules: pfctl: the sum of the child bandwidth higher than parent root_bce0 - The line in question reads [0]: ]"

    any ideas?
