RRD graphs / quality graph - higher than actual delays

  • In the Quality graph, my delay is very constant, and averages on about 53ms. However when I ping gateway from firewall, I get less than 1ms (0.130ms). Do you have similiar stats? Or is it something wrong in my setup?

  • I have a fairly similar issue. The Graph will work fine for a while then on any disruption that will fire off the apinger alarm it will drop to what appears to be the stddev rather than the average RTT.

    Attached are related graphs and the following set of pings are taken from the pfSense box directly against the listed DHCP IPv4 gateway.

    Apinger log for an entry during the time it is "broken"

    Upon restarting the apinger service:

    Any thoughts or ideas?

    Edit: Rummaging through the Redmine I see the issue has been reported: https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/4081. It appears it is being corrected in Version 2.3. :)
