do you only notice this while viewing load average from luci? If so, have you seen this?
an attempt to set option max_requests 1 was made but was reverted (see here) as concurrent requests are apparently needed. I tried setting max_requests to 1 and my symptoms went away without other issues but I've sent set it back to 3 as I don't use luci much...
Might be however could just be coincidence as well.
Once it starts the only remedy is to restart nlbwmon. If so the issue is in implementation and not simply with number of concurrent requests. Otherwise it would be straight forward to reproduce but it's not.
Currently there is not much difference to master, but the 19.07 will soon start to deviate from master, as development goes on in master while 19.07 remains the stable release branch.
Based on the branch name, the official 19.07.0 release is expected for July (but can get postponed to August).
I will soon start to phase out the 18.06 builds.
NOTE: there is no 19.07 buildbot yet, so there are no add-on packages for 19.07. If you need to install something, you could try downloading and installing master snapshot packages, and possibly force the install and hoe that the package works...
Thanks for the new stable build @hnyman! I have been successful in recreating the build environment and able to create images, but I've searched through the forum. Although I haven't found if it was possible to modify the script to be able to build a 18.06.2 stable build with your patches if someone can direct me to what I need to modify in the script if it's possible sorry still new to all of this not sure if I should have posted here or created a new thread. Thanks everyone!
do i need to update your patches? (i'm using patches i thing a couple of months old)
should i also re-create the build environment?
or can i simply go on building in the same way (with my menuconfig and packages' modifications)?
thanks a lot
Most likely, yes, as the underlying sources have changed to some extent.
If there has been change in sources, the patched files may need to be changed / edited /modified as necessary, if you git pull updated sources from upstream.
After almost a year I updated your build from 84xx to the new 19.07 10199. Great job so far with the old build!
Unfortunately I cannot connect more than 32 wifi devices:
"refusing to associate station: too many connected already (32)"
Anyone any idea how to increase the number?
Anyone seeing issues when using irqbalance? I posted a while back that I get random freezes and reboots. It was suggested it might be a hardware issue or power supply. On a whim, I removed irqbalance which I used to have in /etc/rc.local and so far I have over 23 days uptime on r10061-0f6b944c92 ("old" ath). It's possible it's just coincidence, but I'm afraid to touch it and do any firmware updates or config changes, it's nice to have a stable WAP for more than 2 days.
Makes sense. I did not notice a difference with or without it, the CPU is barely used and there's not a lot of traffic on my network either. I just ran irqbalance --oneshot let's see if I get any crashes now, you know for science because being too stable is boring ...
