Web GUI very slow



  • Hello Everyone,
    Started work on new infrastructure and web interface is really slow if no DNS, almost impossible to use that in last release. In my case no internet connection yet, because need hook up all part together.
    To produce.
    Create lan interface with wan and public ip dmz wan. IP just assigned to lan try access web ui.  On this stage no internal or external DNS available.
    Any help or advise than you in advance.

    Without DNS, it will be slooooooooooooooow. No advise beyond get DNS working.



  • Hi

    I have problems with a slow WUI too, i do have DNS, i an running a APU1D4 on a USB stick (ran 2.2.2 on it with no problem)

    any idea?

    The idea is to start your own thread, since it obviously has nothing in common with the OP.



  • OP has chosen to head this tread with "Web GUI very slow", what i have is a very slow Web GUI….... so not to spam the forum with yet another "Web GUI very slow" i asked here...... and maby OP have the same problem when he get his internet connection connected.

    It is not very fast. At all.

    In some menus it can take 10 seconds to get back to the mainpage. Not a good thing.

    The OP has positively determined his issue to be - let me repeat - "really slow if no DNS". Which is entirely correct observation and well-known fact.

    Since you "do have DNS" - please, stop hijacking other people's threads and kindly start your own with some information to debug.

    no or bad dns can cause really slow gui as dok plainly stated.. this is a known issue - it could be related to trying to check if your on current version, which you can turn off.  But I thought they fixed that a while ago, what version are you running of pfsense?

    Under system firmware - see attached image

    You're not alone; slow, slow, slow  :-[

    I have check firmware disabled, but it doesn't matter into which menu item I want to go: wait, wait, wait.

    Yes.



  • It's annoying :-[

    Do we need to file this as a bug somewhere?



  • cmb filed a bug already himself: https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/4814

    Well yes, you can file a bug, but about what? It's slow when DNS does not work, it's slow when LDAP is unreachable… not sure how it's fixable without breaking something else. Haven't noticed any "generic" slowness anywhere (except for 2.2.3+ on nanobsd but there's already a bug about that as noted above, sadly again polluted with the alignment noise  ::))



  • @doktornotor:

    Unless I am misunderstanding the above - it's slow too when DNS is working. At least: my 4 DNS servers in system/general work, and unbound works too. Or did you mean something else re: DNS not working?


  • Banned

    No, did not mean anything else. Maybe you are haunted by ghosts? :D

    So how is gui slow when broken dns related to that bug link that is about "read-only to read-write mount very slow on nanobsd"  I would think these are too completely unrelated issues.. If gui is slow because the media its installed on, how does that relate to being slow when dns doesn't work??
