Description

Our WAN1 uplink repots an average of 14% packet loss (WAN2 is 0%) for a few days now; common issues have been ruled out already. Thus we need a more in-depth investigation to find a solution here.

I have done some searching on the pfSense forum on the packet loss problem.
There are some posts that suggest that the shown packet loss is actually a bug of the pfSense apinger (gateway monitoring) service.
After restarting the apinger service (as suggested in the post), the packet loss on WAN1 (UM) is shown as 0% again.

There is an update for pfSense to version 2.2 (we are on 2.1.5), maybe the bug is fixed there?

Since the restart of the apinger service the (pretended) packet loss on WAN1 has not occured again, so this issue can probably be solved.
