Dear subscribers, I am currently running a production gateway: FreeBSD 6.2 STABLE Onboard Broadcom BCM4401 Fast Ethernet (bfe0) 3 x PCI intel Gigabit Lan (em0, em1, em2)
This machine is my firewall/gateway running PF. In my /var/log/messages I found: Nov 20 10:22:42 techdesk kernel: bfe0: watchdog timeout -- resetting Nov 20 10:22:42 techdesk kernel: bfe0: link state changed to DOWN Nov 20 10:22:44 techdesk kernel: bfe0: link state changed to UP It seems to happen every day or two and from time to time twice a day. The bfe0 is my external interface connected to the internet (6Mb/s). I don't have any free PCI slots to put in another card for testing; furthermore I don't really like putting down the server for too long either. The system is mainly running: pf (no queuing / no balancing / no red / ... ) isc-dhcpd (a small number of internal requests) named (a small number of internal requests) ftp-proxy pftpx I don't think the external connection has to suffer from heavy loads, it only accepts 6Mb/s max. Behind the gateway the only heavy incoming traffic is for the FTP server. Only a bunch of simultaneous connections but at high speed... To be frank the CPU and Memory are idle most of the time ;-) . Someone has a clew on what this could be or how to do further diagnostics?
