Dashboard Traffic Graphs...SPIKES

(1/3) > >>


Is it possible to revert the traffic graphs to how it was in 2.3.2?
Now it shows unnecessary spikes even when there is none. Tried different browsers, the result is the same.
I had thought that limiters or other packages might have interfered , so I installed 2.3.3 and 2.4.b onto different VMs, ran iperf and got the same issues.

Result is the same, disregardless of:

-  different browsers, including keeping current TAB always active or inactive
- system in production or clean install (without load).
- with different time interval (1-10sec)
- different interfaces
- pfsense 2.3.3 and 2.4.0b are affected
- etc.

It shows spikes where clearly there weren't.

Verified interface load with
>systat -ifstat 1 on corresponding systems

speed remained stable ..

Nobody else experienced it?

Screenshots are attached.

Sometimes it stalls for a few seconds, and shows spike for x3 higher than average b/w load. seems to be that data is gathered by browser app in specific way directly instead of getting correct interface loads from pfSense OS.

Open a bug report for that on

I was able to reproduce the spikes in two ways :

1) in pfBlockerNG / Alerts, it takes about a minute to gather all the alerts and do DNS lookup
2) in pfBlockerNG / Update / View log until you click on End View

Both Status Traffic Graphs and Widget Traffic graph showed spikes.
There is probably other ways to reproduce the spikes.

Tried to optimize trafficgraph data retrieval a bit, can you guys test if it mitigates the issue.?

The way the graphs call to ifstat.php to get the latest usage number doesn't seem to have changed much so doesnt explain why it would only start to happen with 2.3.3 / 2.4 so that by itself shouldn't be the issue.. It could be a different issue underneath somewhere. With pullrequest above large parts of the re-authentication code/initialization are skipped. Anyhow I hope it helps for this case as well.
