FreeNAS falls off the network.

Postby nerdmaster » Tue Aug 03, 2010 5:40 pm

Wondering if anyone here has any experience with FreeNAS?

I've recently set up a FreeNAS box for storage vut have started having a few issues with it. I've found that it has started periodically dropping off the network and starts responding after anywhere up to a few minutes.

My box is an HP ML110 G5 server (dual core xeon) with 2Gb RAM installed.
The network adapter I'm using on the LAN is an Intel Pro/1000 (CT, I believe)
The server is running 0.7.2 embedded on a USB stick (connected directly to the internal USB port on the mainboard)

The services running are SMB/CIFS, iSCSI target (currently not in use due to an unrelated VMware issue), NFS and DAAP
only 16% of the RAM is in use

There are 5 machines normally connected. 1 connected via gigabit ethernet (my main PC), 1 connected by 10/100 (router, doesn't really talk to it) and 3 wireless hosts. 1 Connectes to it fairly often, one occasionally and the other never connects to it.
There is also a VMware host that connects directly through a second interface (OPT1) via a crossover cable. As I've encountered an issue which appears to be VMware related I am unable to test how effective this is (that being said I think that interface, the onboard, is a little dodgy and I may replace it)

Here are the most recent log entries.

system:
Aug 2 18:08:03 freenas smbd[5780]: [2010/08/02 18:08:03.799422, 0] lib/util_sock.c:474(read_fd_with_timeout)

I can provide additional info/logs if needed.

I've found that this occurs quite often, it stops responding and starts responding again later. Ping reports the host as unreachable for a varying amount of time (usually a minute or 2) and starts responding again.


dan@MORDOR:~$ ping 192.168.1.150

Could anyone please help? I really want to like FreeNAS due to the embedded boot support and built in DAAP server but this network issue means that I will not be able to rely on it until resolved. DAAP music cutting out mid song and file transfers failing mean that in its current state it's not fit for use. I'd like to avoid moving back to OpenFiler as the USB option enables me to use softRAID for all storage volumes (really want to avoid using onboard RAID)
