WebGUI and SSH not functional

(1/2) > >>

Greetings,

I had the firewall lock up a few days ago and I couldn't SSH in, couldn't get into the WebConfigurator and it was running headless, so I hard rebooted it. Seemed to come back up fine and routing, firewall and other functions worked (DHCP/DHCPv6/etc.). Afterwards though I cannot access the WebGUI or SSH, at all - just times out.

I've tired disabling pfctl, loading the debug ruleset, even loading a saved config from the backups after hooking up a monitor and keyboard. I've tried graceful reboots and a variety of things...

I'm running 2.4.2 currently. I've tried restarting WebConfigurator, restarting PHP-FHP... when I try to restart WebConfig it gives me an error about nginx being out of buffer space but it continues after reboots:

nginx: [emerg] socket() 0.0.0.0:443 failed (105: No buffer space available)

Any ideas? I'd prefer to not delete and redo as it's got a ton of work on the IPv6-PD and the reservations. haha

Thanks!

Well : what about this one : no more memory !?
Can you develop that one ? Like how much installed ? What other memory eaters (also called packages), etc.

Btw : No GUI (we know why) and no SSH (the ssh also abandoned, check log for reason) so you are using the console access. Run "top" to see more info.

McFly80:
I totally agree it's "possible" but it's got 8GB of memory on a Core i5... I've got 5450MB free currently on top.

Even for CPU use, when I run top, it's the highest user of resources. Swap has 16GB and 16GB free. :)

Gertjan:
Great, no apparent memory issue.

Next focus :
Who are the zombies on your system - I've none. Dead nginx instances ?
Easy to check also : stop all processes that are activated by packages. Also : you have only access to the console so it's more a manual operation to "stop" package so the won't restart on reboot. Visit  /usr/local/etc/rc.d and do some clean up (copy the related script files out of the way, for example, move them to /root/) and restart - see if the GUI comes up now.

My "top" command :

--- Quote ---Mem: 34M Active, 280M Inact, 340M Wired, 184M Buf, 1288M Free
--- End quote ---
(I have pfSense running on 4Gb)
Your "Buf" size is 3 times smaller then mine ? (I don't know what "Buf" really is, except that it is reserved work kernel space for communication)

Btw : this is what I should do with my setup - not some sort of "you should do this and all will be fine".

Hi there,

Checked it out - they're all bandwidthd processes that are zombies... 8 of 'em.

I'll have to check the startup and logging, kinda slow.

Thanks!
