`set load-balancing wan rule 0` causes segfault and prevents load balancing from starting
Open, Requires assessmentPublic



(I would like to submit patches to fix this, but would first like to know whether I should update the documentation and command help text to reflect that 0 is an invalid rule ID, or if I should fix the segfault when 0 is used as a rule number.)

The documentation suggests using rule 0 for the load balancing rule.

The command help text suggests 0 is a valid rule number

vyos@vyos# set rule 
Possible completions:
 > <0-4294967295>
                Rule number

But, the code suggests that rule 0 is not valid.

And, more importantly, using rule 0 causes a segfault in wan_lb, preventing the load balancing system from ever working.

Starting out with this configuration:

set load-balancing wan interface-health eth0v11 nexthop ''
set load-balancing wan interface-health eth0v12 nexthop ''
set load-balancing wan rule 10 inbound-interface 'eth0.75'
set load-balancing wan rule 10 interface eth0v11
set load-balancing wan rule 10 interface eth0v12

The above configuration works as expected. I can then add a rule 0 to induce the problem.

[edit load-balancing wan]
vyos@vyos# set rule 0 inbound-interface eth0.75
[edit load-balancing wan]
vyos@vyos# set rule 0 interface eth0
