General Questions / Re: Effects of packetloss on the system.
« on: July 27, 2016, 06:26:41 pm »
I doubt whether there's any real diff in CPU usage, and it would take *much* more than 10% CPU usage to cause 1% loss. It'd have to be absolutely floored, pegged at 100% CPU, to have 1% loss.

Which process is using the CPU?

DHCP and DNS / Re: WAN dhcp (dhclient) going to wrong IP
« on: July 27, 2016, 06:03:22 pm » is almost certainly your modem, that's the default IP they often use in those cases. If the modem loses uplink, it tries to assign you an IP to be able to communicate with it. That's not it going to any IP, that's just that your modem is replying from that IP. Problem is your modem or its connection to your provider.

There was a server issue that was addressed earlier today that was causing slow downloads. It's been fine for a bit now.

Check out the "Upgrade resulted in running 2.3.1" section, same applies for 2.3.2->2.3.3 and going back to 2.3.2.

though no harm in staying on 2.3.3 if you want, what you're on there is essentially no different from 2.3.2 release (though it will be if you upgrade again and keep following snapshots).

What exactly is that pkg command that's running?

Code: [Select]
ps auwwx|grep pkg

You realize that does nothing in most people's use cases, right? That's only applicable to any traffic initiated by the firewall itself, not to traffic passing through it. Outside of circumstances like squid, that's very little of your traffic.

Still wouldn't hurt to add, maybe someone can get that added.

General Discussion / Re: Good way to troubleshoot lan connectivity?

Assuming a typical small network where the clients and server are on the same subnet, you can eliminate the router, because that traffic never touches it so it can't have any impact.

From there you'll have to troubleshoot further to narrow it down. First step would be to determine whether it's a complete loss of network connectivity (pings drop?), or only loss of SMB shares.

That would be attributable to either the NIC itself (maybe it's flaky), or the BIOS or motherboard. I'd try reseating the card first, maybe it got knocked a bit while replacing the CPU.

The update files' sha256 were originally on the updates prior to being signed. They've been updated to match, and I added a note to the release documentation to ensure the steps are always run in the described order so that doesn't happen in the future. Thanks for the report.

You can use the rescue config option in the installer to do the reinstall and keep the config.

That's the TFTP proxy, not bittorrent.

NAT / Re: simple NAT question

That's correct. Nothing changed in new releases. Go through the troubleshooting steps.

Likely one of 2-5 under common problems.

None of those apply in that case actually. To upgrade from 2.3.2 snapshots to release, just change the update branch back to stable, and upgrade as usual. I've done that on several systems without issue. What version does it show you're running after doing that?
