Description

On the version 2.1.5 I got the traffic shaping work without problem but after upgraded to 2.2 it's just doesn't working anymore. I'm getting this message all the time: ...driver does not support altq...

Anything changed to make it right? It was fine on 2.1.5 but on 2.2 dont.

which driver is it saying doesn't support altq?

Actions #2

Updated by Helio Candido almost 7 years ago

I'm using 2 NIC's Realtek RTL8111/8168 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet. Both are working on PFSense 2.1.5 with traffic shapping but on 2.2 doesn't.

PFSense in both scenaries is running under XenServer 6.2 SP1 (updated). I just start the configuration using traffic shapping wizard but on the final when I'll click to finish I got that message on 2.2.

that should be something that changed to xn NICs after upgrade so they're no longer Realtek, is that the case?

Actions #4

Yes, that NIC's changed to xm but still working on 2.1.5 and not on 2.2.

Please, can somebody build an unofficial release (2.2.1+) without netfront. I don't have time to create a build environment (sign LA, create SSH-key, ...).
If somebody has already a build environment it should be easy to build without netfront.

Is there something to test or something else to do?
I'm still on 2.1.5 and want to update.

Will be there a real solution in next time or should I add an extra nic to these servers?

Unknown when it will be fixed. Not a priority to this point.

I'm installing the next server and need 8+ networks. Because xen can't handle so much NICs I have to use tagging.

If you can't fix it, so please remove xn:
  1. build an extra image without xn.
  2. show me an loader option to disable xn.

I can't work with this. With an extra NIC I loose bandwidth.

There are a lot of posts about pfsense 2.2 and buggy xn implementation.

Actions #13

Updated by Giancarlos Cataldo over 6 years ago

I think same as Grischa Zengel said!
We need an option to disable xn implementation

Actions #14

Updated by Grischa Zengel over 6 years ago

2.2.4-RELEASE Now Available

When can we use this?
There are security fixes, which we must have.

Actions #15

Updated by Andreas Pflug about 6 years ago

Just to step in, until VLAN and ALTQ is supported there really needs to be a way to disable xn.

If I read #3670 I will this twice. I'm still on 2.1.5 and ipv6 didn't work with my ISP.

  • Target version deleted (2.3)

the ability to disable PV is there in 2.3 now (#5452) for those who want to retain the previous shaping ability.
