Are engine revs raised during DPF regeneration?

Are engine revs raised during DPF regeneration on a Nissan Qashqai?

No. Extra diesel fuel is post-injected into the engine to ignite the DPF and burn off the soot during active regeneration, but engine revs should not rise. What you might experience is the radiator cooling fan running hard and continuing to run after you switch off the engine because of the extreme heat.

I read a lot about diesel DPFs but how do I know when the fuel system is regenerating? I drive a Toyota RAV4 2.2-litre diesel. Nothing comes alight on the dash board and only once did I smell hot oil?
I owned an Evoque that had issues with the DPF. But when a diesel flags up that the DPF needs a regen, how long time or distance wise do you have to get it on a motorway/dual carriageway before the fuel...
Does active regeneration of the DPF happen automatically? And should I put additives into the fuel?
