Could Not Setup Receive Structures Pfsense

I guess it will be the only solution to use em(4) in the Real World (ie. I have some other issues as well, hence going to try pfSense 2.2 based on FreeBSD 10 to see if there is any improvement. We are taking about exceptional recoverable situation not handled by the software, it should not bring the complete system down. This can be reproduced as simply as booting in single-user mode with an empty /boot/loader.conf and doing: ifconfig igb0 up ifconfig igb1 up I've tried to track this down, and as Source

It already has good sections for other tunables, so adding them should be easy. or just increase amount of > mbuf_cluster/mbuf_jumbo_page/mbuf_jumbo_9k from that driver... > ... Do you really expect people to forever run pfSense on 1 core processors and 1 network card - because that is what pfSense is "tuned" for? I'm not real happy with how difficult that was. https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=33121.0

Doug -- Nothin' ever doesn't change, but nothin' changes much. -- OK Go This is on a Supermicro X8DTH-iF, BIOS 2.0a (latest) with a dual on-board 82576. This is a community subreddit so lets try and keep the discourse polite. https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/1221 On a sidenote, it could be there is a typo in the above comment.It states kern.ipc.nmbclusters="655356" but should probably readkern.ipc.nmbclusters="65536" no?

Job done. Does this mean I should try hw.igb.num_queues=8 instead of hw.igb.num_queues=4 ? Since there's no man pages available in pfSense, my reference regarding the matter was the following from an existing FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE machine: LOADER.CONF (5)---- SNIP ---- /boot/loader.conf user defined settings. /boot/loader.conf.local richc Newbie Posts: 19 Karma: +0/-0 Error message igb: Could not setup and receive structures « on: February 09, 2011, 04:32:06 am » Hi,Hopefully someone on here can help, I am

With some combinations of hardware, where you don't buy it from us (so we don't know what it is), you may need to tune things accordingly if you hit the message It seems to be enough for stable work and driver is used less memory.

What is different however is that pfSense writes it's own values to loader.conf without checking or sucking existing values back in that may exist in loader.conf, which is an entirely different http://strobelfilms.com/could-not/could-not-setup-receive-structures-freenas.html You don't have to apply it on install, it can be set in the config as a system tunable. #19 Updated by Denis Kozlov over 1 year ago Once again, why References from http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Booting_Options indicate the use of loader.conf, but it's not until http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Boot_Troubleshooting that loader.conf.local is indicated to be used, but without explanation as to why one may want do that.

Another consideration may be to have a new section under advanced that let's people provide additional boot options required and have them written out to loader.conf along with the pfSense specific Have you tried the > loader.conf.local changes as reference in the bug tracker? > > Also see the wiki on this topic: > https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Tuning_and_Troubleshooting_Network_Cards > > If you have built it All rights reserved.REDDIT and the ALIEN Logo are registered trademarks of reddit inc.πRendered by PID 19141 on app-522 at 2016-12-24 08:29:43.182300+00:00 running d73bd90 country code: SE.

I am not familiar with these settings just trying to figure out what settings I should apply for stability and out of the box performance. When I try it when booting from the 8.1-RELEASE amd64 DVD, I can bring up both interfaces. I also want to re-evaluate the vSwitch settings I've made, as I don't have a multiple pNIC's in my vSwitch.
