BandwitdthD - CoreDump after few hours.

  • Im having trouble with my pfSense 1.2 and bandwidthD.

    BandwidthD would connect and update its data every ~2.5min, but after a few hours(2 or 3) it errors every update interval, adding lines simmilar to this every time to the system log.
    The bandwidthD daily http dump indeed stops at 03:10:13.

    Strangely enough, the Weekly and Monthly stats are relatively up to date, within 2 hours. Even more strange is that the Graphs are updating, but the table is not. Heres a screenshot.
    If you do the maths, 245kbit/s for 9hours does not equal 259MB up the upload.

    May 25 00:49:31 bandwidthd: Packet Encoding: Ethernet
    May 25 00:49:31 bandwidthd: Drawing initial graphs
    May 25 03:13:34 kernel: pid 2627 (bandwidthd), uid 0: exited on signal 8 (core dumped)
    May 25 03:16:55 kernel: pid 2979 (bandwidthd), uid 0: exited on signal 8 (core dumped)
    May 25 03:20:16 kernel: pid 3327 (bandwidthd), uid 0: exited on signal 8 (core dumped)
    May 25 03:23:37 kernel: pid 3642 (bandwidthd), uid 0: exited on signal 8 (core dumped)

    My NIC's are intel based 10/100 S52557/S82558, and log data fine untill it errors.

    Any help or ideas on what could be causing this?

    Cheers, Will.

  • How much RAM do you have in that machine?

  • 512MB of DDR ram, 1.7GHz Pent4, 40GB hdd.

    Running pfSense 1.2, squid and bandwidthD. Serving only 6 or so PC's.
    I know squid isnt causing the problem as i just installed, as in bandwithd was acting up before installing it. Not that it might not contribute to the problem.

    Edit: Stats page currently reporting 34% Ram usage. I have another 512MB stick i could use if 512 is not enough.
