PF Wedged/Busy Notice Troubleshooting
Getting PF wedged/busy notice with every reboot.
• PF was wedged/busy and has been reset. @ 2016-08-19 17:55:45
• There were error(s) loading the rules: pfctl: DIOCXCOMMIT: Device busy - The line in question reads : @ 2016-08-19 17:55:46
Ver: 2.3.2 i386
Not much there to go on. A line number might be nice.
How to track this down?
There isn't a specific line in that case, it's a general error from pf. Usually happens if some other process is already attempting to access/load rules when the reload happens. There was a race condition in rc.newwanip not long ago that could do that frequently but that has been addressed. I don't doubt there are some others out there, but it's generally harmless since it reloads again after generating the notice.
