PFSENSE 2.2 Two Bugs to keep in mind before upgrade…



  • Dear all,
    PfSense 2.2 64 apinger shows impossible latency for my GWs.
    GWVSAT Shoud be 600ms at least
    GWWiMAX Should be 150ms at least

    BUT…

    Any ideas?

    Thank YOu



  • pfSense 2.2 can run faster than the speed of light - only joking  ;)

    There are other threads about this. After some WAN events (maybe latency going up and coming back down again), apinger gets its rolling average too optimistic. At the monent its a feature!

    anyway, it is the simple truth :)

    Not so "feature", as if to avoid alarms i put very long timeouts, after a while (2-3 hrs) one of the 3 GW simply goes off until i restart the apinger service…
    I will collect some logs...



  • there's an open bug for it. it's scheduled to be fixed for 2.2.1

    you can track its progress here: https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/4081



  • Ok, I reply to myself also for the topic about limiters. Actually in 2.2 are not working and it seems it's a kernel problem:

    I confirm Limiters are not working also using floating rules…

    ok, waiting for 2.2.1 ;)
