--- Comment #4 from Franco Fichtner <franco_at_opnsense.org> ---
Kirstof, I send people here when we can establish the likelihood that this is
an OS area of interest.  I don't tell them what to do and I don't tell you what
you should do.

However, if you close tickets based on your assumption that we send people here
all the time I can tell you that assumption is off so I will simply say that is
neither nice nor productive and that's it.

When you assume that OPNsense is not FreeBSD that assumption is off as well and
I think you know that too, but insist otherwise.

Yes this is about dummynet and the reporter will have to add more information
about his configuration in any case, but please be aware you do not have to
safeguarding this bugtracker from reports or reporters who are possibly using
FreeBSD or open source software for the first time and don't know what
qualifies as a good and informative report yet.  We all have to deal with this
situation possibly on a daily basis.

I can tell you that panics exist in WFQ scheduler that haven't been worked on
in years. I can also tell you that the MBPS calculation is off after about 500
MBit/s of specification where you have to start overcommitting on bandwidth to
match actual line speed. This report may be about the latter or something else.

The fact we don't know yet is the only fact why this is is taking an
unprofessional turn after a single day of the report being sent.


Cheers,
Franco
