50% interrupt

  • Hi!

    Out of nowhere pfsense is down, networking is partially down and I get this:

    This happened when I watched movie over IPsec s2s…
    Started to happen this week.

    Any idea?

    If I reboot machine it hangs and needs to be manually powered off and on.

  • IS this an Issue with 2.3 BETA?

  • I don`t know but I have 2.3 installed for 2 months and in a last week this issue popped up.

  • MSS clamping is on?

  • No

  • Something's beating it to death on em1 from the looks of it, the "100.00% [intr{irq259: em1:rx0}". Huge amount of load on receive. What traffic you see on that NIC? 'tcpdump -ni em1' on console while it's looking like that. em1 your LAN NIC or?

  • Yeah, em1 is LAN nic correct.

    Funny thing is, there is NO traffic at all :)

  • What hardware's that?

  • em1: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection="" 7.4.2="">port 0x2000-0x201f mem 0xd0120000-0xd013ffff,0xd0100000-0xd011ffff,0xd0140000-0xd0143fff irq 17 at device 0.0 on pci1
    em1: Using MSIX interrupts with 3 vectors
    em1: netmap queues/slots: TX 1/1024, RX 1/1024

    Intel D2500CEE mobo.</intel(r)>

  • Is this still replicable for you? Haven't heard of it elsewhere.

  • This happened 2X when I streamed video over ipsec.
    Disabled hardware stuff in advanced settings and hasnt happened since.

    Could you please the friendly and tell us all exactly what you have done?
    Perhaps it might be that others also find this useful and/or over Google as a solution.

  • Disabled hardware offload, tso all 3  options in advanced section of the config…

  • Which of those did you have enabled before? The defaults, TSO and LRO off, hardware checksum offloading on, should be fine there.

  • I had all enabled:

    Disable hardware checksum offload
    Disable hardware TCP segmentation offload
    Disable hardware large receive offload
