Pf v2.3.1 –> pfB_Top_v4: Cannot allocate memory



  • Running pf v2.3.1 on a Intel Quad Core @ 2.4GHz w/ 2GB RAM

    Since v2.3, I have been seeing the following error:

    here were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:63: cannot define table pfB_Top_v4: Cannot allocate memory - The line in question reads [63]: table <pfB_Top_v4> persist file "/var/db/aliastables/pfB_Top_v4.txt"

    Memory consumption of the pfSense appliance is always around 55%.

    The error seems to indicate that pfSense was not able to allocate enough memory to load up the pfBlocket Top_4.

    Anyone seen this or is aware of a resolution?

    Thanks!



  • BUMP.  Anyone??

    I'm starting to see more frequent occurence of

    /rc.filter_configure_sync: New alert found: There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:63: cannot define table pfB_Top_v4: Cannot allocate memory - The line in question reads [63]: table <pfb_top_v4>persist file "/var/db/aliastables/pfB_Top_v4.txt"</pfb_top_v4>
