this is certainly not the expected behaviour. Are you
building a bridge loop
by any chance? Please explain your configuration (batctl if, brctl show,
...) and check if you have a high amount of broadcasts somehow.
Sorry for my late answer. I was busy during the week and didnt find the time to
look into out setup in detail till now.
We have two wireless interfaces wlan0 and wlan0-1. We also have two ethernet
interfaces eth0.1 and eth0.3 and one VPN interface ffolVPN.
The interfaces wlan0 and eth0.1 are the interfaces used for clients. They are
bridged together with bat0:
root@RosenplatzVPN:~# brctl show
bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
br-mesh 8000.a0f3c15b54a6 no bat0
The interfaces wlan0-1 and eth0.3 are the interfaces we use for meshing with
other routers in the same "mesh cloud". These are the interfaces both routers
are connected by each other. The vpn interface ffolVPN is used to connect with
outher "mesh clouds" but the two routers in this case are not connected by
this interface. On the interfaces wlan0-1, eth0.3 and ffolVPN runs Batman
root@RosenplatzVPN:~# batctl if
To analyze the amount of broadcast traffic I did a tcpdump on the Batman
interfaces wlan0-1 and eth0.3. For me there seems to be a big amount of
broadcast traffic, but I don´t know the normal level of brodcasts so I can´t
compare which amount is right and which is wrong. But maybe you can so I
uploaded the files for you. You can analyze them using wireshark or some other
If you need more data just ask and I will try to provide it.
