2.4 Development Snapshots / Re: Disk Usage Space Error
« on: December 12, 2017, 04:00:40 pm »
Speaking of logs, I just had a silly idea.  Wonder how hard it would be to make a package that maintained extensive logs offsite on something like google docs or microsoft docs etc?

I would think using the SysLog server add on would be the ticket, no?  :)

If you're using ZFS and have a snapshot or some other FS level object that references old blocks, "deleting" files does not clear out the data.

In your example that makes perfect sense but that doesn't explain how *Prior* to deleting any and all logs. Say it was at 40% disk utilized and when I selected delete all historic logs, charts, graphs, etc.

The system actually displayed the usage as increasing to say 41~45% and fluctuated.

A day later upon logging in the disk space was back down to 20% so this tells me there is UI / Process bug. A lay person would expect one of two outcomes which are the following:

- Delete: Disk space is immediately reclaimed and reflected
- Delete: Minimal disk space is reclaimed and reflected based on your example

In no way would a lay person expect to see a delete to cause the disk space to decrease in capacity and increase in initial space.  :o  :-[

Agreed and when I checked the different tabs and their settings all of them were defaulted to over write upon a full state. The biggest drop was clearing out the charts and graphs in ntopng, bandwidth d, etc.

I'll circle back when I am on site to check the console to see what folders are the largest.

Thank You!

The other day I decided to delete any and all logs in the system. Once done the disk usage indicator in the dashboard actually increased in disk space?!?  :-\  :-[ A little surprised I once again went through what ever tabs to delete the logs and charts. Again the disk space continued to climb to 41% disk space consumed??

This afternoon I logged in and the system is now back to what I expected to see which is 20%.

I have to gather there is a UI bug that's linked to some kind of process in the back ground. I sat and waited for what seemed like hours before logging out because after three plus hours the disk space usage either was climbing or it didn't drop back down to what I expected to see.

Thank You!

just fyi: pfBlockerNG 2.1.2_2 includes that patch.

Noted, and thank you!

Now, lets get to the bottom of [...] the 502 error!
Do you run pfBlockerng? There appears to be an issue with it that causes the 502 error.

Yes, I've been tracking that ongoing thread since it was created. Looking forward to root cause being identified and a fix issued.

I wanted to update this post by saying the traffic graph is now working!  :) Also the time has been corrected and have been able to use the actual drop down menu for my location. I have to gather this was fixed in the 2.4.2 release so that is two item off the list. Thank you to those hidden hero's who resolved this issue!

It would have been nice if someone would have chimed in as to what broke to cause these issues. I am working through the list to see if anything else is amiss.

Thank You!

Since updating to 2.4.2 and updating the various applications this problem appears to be solved. Much thanks to all the developers who had a hand in this.

Now, lets get to the bottom of why my WiFi connection keeps getting dropped along with the 502 error!

Very interested in this will this even happen??

Perhaps you're are right maybe a scratch install would help?!? At the moment I don't have the time to complete that task but it's on the to do list.

Thank you all!

It would have been quicker to do a re-install than all the messing about, that's for sure. :)

LOL - Noted!!  ;D

I've been running 2.4 since it's first inception, through all the beta stages and RCs, so have a lot of other people.

I can count on one hand the number of problems my system has had that were 'notable', only one was a showstopper and that was resolved within hours.

99% of the issues are not down to pfSense per say, but the jump to FreeBSD 11.*  Even Microsoft and Apple have issues you know.

The particular issue you are noticing there I have only seen when I force a pfBlocker update when the system is busy doing something else, it settles and sorts itself out and carries on, nothing to worry about.

Perhaps they need to set the log levels to a lower level so a lot of these junk warnings are not shown, and there are several.

At the moment it's not a show stopper for me. Just not used to seeing alert messages from the system that don't seem to correlate to how the system is running. As noted this was never seen in the 2.3.4 final build - but your thoughts this could be related to FreeBSD 1.1 may be spot on.

Hopefully more people start to see this and the pfsense team can resolve it in the next RC builds.

Have you selected an alternate time server?

I'm using a local one in the UK, and I select Europe London. It gets it perfectly and knows it's also BST.

Just to summarize what I have done thus far:

- Added extra NTP servers - No joy
- Deleted all NTP servers but kept a local one - No joy
- Rebooted afterwards in case it was needed - No joy
- Stopped & Restarted the NTP service - No joy
- Used different computers & browsers​ - No joy
- Cleared broswer history, cookies, temporary data etc - No joy
- Selected other States / Provinces close to me - No joy
- Selected just a generic time zone like -6DST - No joy
- Confirmed actual computer BIOS time is correct - It is
- Confirmed user terminals date & time are accurate - They are
- Confirmed the pfsense NTP service is actually running and updating in the logs

Perhaps you're are right maybe a scratch install would help?!? At the moment I don't have the time to complete that task but it's on the to do list.

Thank you all!

Did you try this : use another browser / device that you didn't use before to connect to the GUI / pfSense ....


Yes I did same results.

Hello PiBa,

I'll start with what should be the easiest problem ~ Time

If I select the correct location with my city in America the time is off by (approx) 5~12 hours. I don't recall exactly because I tried so many locations which were close to my area to see if there was a difference. I then selected the CST6DST because that was pretty generic and should have put me for sure within the hour.

Nope . . .

I literally had to select etc/GMT +0 for the *pfSense current time* to reflect the correct time.  >:(

My time zone should be Central -6 DST . . .

If you review the attachment at the upper left using the make belief time zone I placed myself in the time and date is correct. If you look at the NTP time below that is the time the system believes I'm using. For what ever reason(s) various programs seem to either reflect the make belief time I used to make it happen.

Or they will actually display times that make no sense or state the time and date are in the past?!?!

Come on its 2017 time keeping can't seriously be that difficult given all the resources and automated systems in place!!  >:(

- The pfSense computer that hosts the software *BIOS* time is 100% correct and reflects reality.
- Every computer system in my home also reflect real world time, date, DST etc.
- Yet the pfSense software doesn't no matter what I do to compensate or correct for it.

I've scanned the forums dating back five years and there are dozens of threads about this so this is something that has never been fixed. At this point I can't trust the logs to provide me accurate details of events because they are off from 5~12 hours in the past or future. If I can't correct the time issue what's the point of moving forward with the rest of the problem(s)?!?!?

I think its safe to ignore.. I've seen it sometimes, but never seemed to affect any functionality..

As far as I can tell you're correct it doesn't seem to impact any systems. Having said that, I never had this issue with the last 2.3.4 final release nor any of these other problems found here: I would really like someone from the pfSense team to review those issues and perhaps offer some insight as to how to resolve them.

As of this writing there a lot of *Lookly Lues* but no feedback about next steps . . .

Given how many threads have already been created for the 2.4.0 branch there's something wrong.
