Default Solar radiation - diffuse flux

Claire is on a distinguished road

I have a problem when I try to simulate the solar radiation on a surface (vertical cylinder) : when I display the solar flux on my surface, only the direct flux appears and the diffuse (and reflected) flux does not appear. So a major part of my surface is not heated. Is it normal?

Thank you,
