I have 56 core but I found only 1 CPU utilized by squid with 100% CPU persistently

seems that squid only single threaded...

but I read from https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Low_Throughput_Troubleshooting
saying that pfsense 2.2 or later already use multiple cores...

what I missed on my configuration....

Hi,

Why 56 cores ??

I miss something : is this squid related or not ? I mean, when you disable squid, the problem is solved - no more problems ??

I advise you to post and read here : pfSense Forum pfSense English Support Packages Cache/Proxy


Note : not related but strange :
Code: [Select]
AES-NI CPU Crypto: Yes (inactive)

yes this is squid related as PFSense rely with squid to perform cache and filtering...


yes if squid turn off it will fix the issue...

now I turn off the HTTPS MITM... and CPU usage lower a bit... but still high.....

for the AES-NI CPU, i think its because my hardware support it but by configuration is not selected using AES-NI as I'm not yet in the phase using VPN...

Hi Gertjan

as Why 56 Cores... 
as simple that I have the resource and I thought that I can limit it or change it later from VM....

now I turn off the HTTPS MITM... and CPU usage lower a bit... but still high.....

for the AES-NI CPU, i think its because my hardware support it but by configuration is not selected using AES-NI as I'm not yet in the phase using VPN...

 

MITM = Huge can of worms +  many apps/devices are having hard certs so you can not use your own, if you want to filter I would try PfblockNG, As for caching with todays bigger pipes and dynamic content there is not much use for it

HI Chris,

Thanks for replying...

Could you please let me know why I should go with PfBlockNG rather than SquidGuard...

as I ready, PFBlockNG is used if I host mail server and this will prevent IP Block Country that is known as spammer to reach our server....

if I compare to SquidGuard, its different of purpose..... even though you can put the filter on the outbound from your internal LAN....

So, anyone can give me a clue as why I have almost 100% CPU utilisation persistently on 1 CPU rather then spread into multiple CPU?

CPU usage information on the Dashboard is useless  as its represent to all CPU I have... since I have many.. then if 1 CPU is high the CPU Dashboard info doesn't tell me anything..

PfblockerNG can use dns lists to block content that is far more efficient and far less problematic then squid  and cos its using dns lists you do not need MITM, here is a great video

Squid is a "pfSense package". The sub parts are the pfSEnse glue-ware to add the settings and the official squid FreeBSD package - or even one level higher : check out the manual -> (example) => https://wiki.squid-cache.org/MultipleInstances
