Bandwidthd with PostgreSQL [logging double the traffic]



  • The amount of traffic that I see from 2 PFsense (2 sensors) is exactly the double that I'm mesuring.
    On phppgadmin seems that I'm indeed getting the double of the necessary information:

    This is my sensor 1 on PFSense (same for sensor 2, just another sensor name):

    # the package manager resyncs.

    # An interval is 2.5 minutes, this is how many
    # intervals to skip before doing a graphing run
    
    # Graph cutoff is how many k must be transferred by an
    # ip before we bother to graph it
    
    #Put interface in promiscuous mode to score to traffic
    #that may not be routing through the host machine.
    promiscuous false
    
    #Log data to cdf file htdocs/log.cdf
    
    #Read back the cdf file on startup
    
    # Standard postgres connect string, just like php, see postgres docs for
    # details

    # Arbitrary sensor name, I recommend the sensors fully qualified domain
    # name
    sensor_id "VPN"
    
    #Libpcap format filter string used to control what bandwidthd sees
    #Please always include "ip" in the string to avoid strange problems
    
    #Draw Graphs - This defaults to true to graph the traffic bandwidthd is recording
    #Usually set this to false if you only want cdf output or
    #you are using the database output option. Bandwidthd will use very little
    #ram and cpu if this is set to false.
    graph false
    
    #Set META REFRESH seconds (default 150, use 0 to disable).
    

    Using PFSense 2.2.3.
    But just did a clean install of 2.2.5 with nothing but Bandwidthd and still get the same double amount of log.

    PS: today a generated cdf files, and it seems to be doubled too:
