Title: Network devices dropping
Post by: republicus on June 02, 2019, 09:41:00 am
Recently my opnsense system has been intermittently crashing multiple times a day.

I am still able to access the web GUI through opnsense the LAN address but am unable to ping the WAN gateway.
If I bypass opnsense my other devices communicate with the WAN normally.
Opnsense console appears to be locked up (attachment) and I must reboot to restore connectivity until it occurs again.

That has been the case for a few days, but today it was slightly different wherein my LAN interface went down but the console remained up. I was able to restore connectivity by issuing (ifconfig em6 down/up).

I'm not sure what's going on. Right now I've bypassed opnsense on a few devices that need stable uptime which is of course not ideal

Any thoughts that might help me?

I have also been suffering lockups and connectivity loss, requiring full manual reboots. Happens at least once a day and usually 2-3. I lose all network connectivity through OPNsense, though sometimes I don't notice straight away as if streaming a film from my media server, my switch keeps that traffic flowing. I cannot access the webgui and my console is locked up too. I have discovered that it only happens when my small server is connected to the network. It runs Arch Linux and if disconnected the lockups stop. What else do you have connected on your network? Are you able to try removing one device each day and see if the lockups stop for that time period?

I have dozens of VPS connected. That's not really practical.

Its just happened again. This time I had left the console on the shell so it wasn't locked up and i was able to resolve the matter without rebooting.

My WAN port was down. Pings to the WAN gateway said host was down.
To restore I issued
Code: [Select]
ipconfig em9 down/up
I never touched anything physical and all devices that are bypassing opnsense have no connectivity problems. Something is up and im not sure how to resolve it
