Unbound frequently restarts on 2.2 - is this normal?



  • Unbound restarts here roughly every 3 hours. At this time I completely lose the connection to pfSense.

    Do you have the same symptoms or is just the logs being written? Im curious if the restart really affects me or there is something else going which interrupts the connection between WIFI and pfSense.


  • Banned

    Anyone still having this issue, try this:
    https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=89589.msg558373#msg558373

    Would like to get some feedback beyond the handful of devices I manage.

    For me this stopped the repeated "unbound: service stopped", "unbound: start of service" messages 2-3 times per minute. Thanks - this was a longstanding issue.

    It fit because this installation was previously dnsmasq, switched to unbound some time ago.

    Specifically, the relevant part of the config export looked like this before:

    	 <dnsmasq><regdhcpstatic><custom_options><domain_needed><no_private_reverse><interface></interface></no_private_reverse></domain_needed></custom_options></regdhcpstatic></dnsmasq> 
    

    and like this after:

    	 <dnsmasq><custom_options><domain_needed><no_private_reverse><interface></interface></no_private_reverse></domain_needed></custom_options></dnsmasq> 
    

    It also took a reboot.

    A more subtle issue for me is that machines seem to lose DNS resolution (maybe all connectivity?) for about 5 seconds every time their DHCP lease expires and is renewed. For now I've just lengthened DHCP leases significantly - they were short for testing. Separate issue I guess.
