openvpn MBUF: mbuf packet dropped

Post by yasmine.chtourou » Thu Jun 15, 2017 1:11 pm

I have an issue with my vpn server and still digging for a solution. In the vpn log I'm getting :

Code: Select all

openvpn[25902]: user.name/x.x.x.x:yyyy MBUF: mbuf packet dropped
This is causing timeouts when accessing other servers through the VPN and also reconnection in some use-cases.

This is the server configuration file:
server
# Certs
ca /etc/openvpn/easyrsa/pki/ca.crt
cert /etc/openvpn/easyrsa/pki/issued/vpn-us-east.crt
key /etc/openvpn/easyrsa/pki/private/vpn-us-east.key
dh /etc/openvpn/easyrsa/pki/dh.pem
crl-verify /etc/openvpn/easyrsa/pki/crl.pem

# Network configuration
## "dev tun" will create a routed IP tunnel
dev tun
port 1194
proto tcp
server 10.0.2.0 255.255.255.0
## Maintain a record of client <-> virtual IP address
## associations in this file. If OpenVPN goes down or
## is restarted, reconnecting clients can be assigned
## the same virtual IP address from the pool that was
## previously assigned.
ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt

# Connection configuration

# # The keepalive directive causes ping-like
# # messages to be sent back and forth over
# # the link so that each side knows when
# # the other side has gone down.
# # Ping every 10 seconds, assume that remote
# # peer is down if no ping received during
# # a 120 second time period.
keepalive 10 120
comp-lzo
persist-key
persist-tun

# Logging
status openvpn-status.log
verb 4
mute 5

#Security Config
###Use AES-256-CBC (Cipher Block Chaining) for data encryption
cipher AES-256-CBC
##Use SHA512 to authenticate encrypted data
auth SHA512
###Use at least the version 1.2 of TLS (which is the only truly secure version atm)
#Maximum number of output packets queued before TCP (default=64)
tcp-queue-limit 256

#Ldap auth
plugin /usr/lib64/openvpn/plugin/lib/openvpn-auth-ldap.so /etc/openvpn/auth/ldap.conf
client-cert-not-required
username-as-common-name

# Push configuration
push "dhcp-option DOMAIN domain.com";
push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.8.8";
push other routes
I tried to google the issue but didn't find any useful information. Can some one please help ?

You should take care with --comp-lzo .. not sure how 'yes' and 'adaptive' would work over all ..

How many clients do your serve ?

Can you try with --proto udp ?

The vpn servers arround 200 clients. That's why I can't change from tcp to udp since this will require changing all client configuration. When I test connectivity with an other test vpn server with the same configuration for both client and server, I don't find any issue in the log.
I suspected the issue to be related to both tcp-queue-limit and bcast-buffers options. I'm not sure what exact values should be setting and what's the exact value to set.

I tried adding a line in the sever.conf

Code: Select all

[oconf= Added line]bcast-buffers 4096[/oconf]
After adding this line the error in the log changed to the following :
