Bufferbloat and the Interface is blank

  • I'm running 2.2.4 in a virtual (XenServer) environment.  Nothing else running there at the moment, and I had to turn off hardware tx offloading in Xen to not be rate limited.  So, now I'm getting reports on dslreports and others that I'm running well above my 100mbps rate.  Sometimes close to 170mbps!  That's great, except I'm also having a lot of problems with CoD, and the bufferbloat test at dslreports is an F every time.

    I found this:  https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=98404.0

    I'd like to try this, but my gui, through a couple of different systems and different browsers, never shows anything on the left under Interfaces.  The "tree" that's described there never shows up.  Is there something I need to do to enable it?

  • "Nothing" could be taken a few ways. Can you show a screenshot?

  • Blank area on the left.  Looks like it might be a script problem of some sort, but it's the same where ever I try it from.

  • Image didn't work, but best on your included description, I assume you're correct in that you are having a display issue and nothing at all is showing up. You should have at least one entry for every interface, no mater what.

  • Yep, that's correct.  I see the message in the middle-right that says something about the tree on the left, but just blank space where the tree should be.  Like I said though, different pc's/mobile devices, different browsers, all acting the same.

  • It's a link to the image, and not the image:  https://goo.gl/photos/onckyvcu7m3YSwvz6

  • Any ideas?

  • Are both your NICs the same?  I've seen cases where you don't see a queue if its NIC is unsupported.
