    netasq v8 load

    Hi all

    I have a constant load average of 1.1 on a ns-bsd box (freebsd tuned for
    netasq firewalls).
    The "ps aux" gives me the following informations:

    USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TT STAT STARTED TIME COMMAND
    admin 38 53.4 0.0 0 8 ?? DL Fri08AM 4452:17.71 [pollng:
    cpu0]
    admin 33 37.1 0.0 0 8 ?? RL Fri08AM 3532:43.04 [pollng:
    idle]


    Does somebody knows what is the [pollng: cpu0] process ?
    Thanks in advance
    regards

    You can have more informations on pollng by folowwing this link:
    http://www.netasq.com/opensource/pol...v1-freebsd.tgz

    or by searching through freebsd-net archives.

    Very basically, this is a process which takes all available CPU to
    react faster when network packets comes in.

    Hi
    Thank you for your answer Yvan, very interresting informations, I understant
    what pollng is now..

    The load-average came after upgrading the firmware on a F200 from release
    7.0.6.2 to 8.0.1.1 . I guess that it is a normal load for that kind of
    firewalls... On top of that, the global response time of the box is still
    correct.

    thanks

    There have been lots of major changes between 7.0.x and 8.0.x, including ....
    pollng :-)

    As long as the highest process is pollng, this means that your appliance is not
    so much loaded.
