PfSense just restarted on its own ?



  • At noon, it updated a bunch of snort rules and then 60 minutes later it just restarted.
    Not sure how long it had been up since then - maybe 50 days. It is supposed to do this (restart automatically), and if so, is there a set time-span between restarts? Or should I be concerned?
    Thanks!

    P.S. Just found this in the System Log. Looks like pfSense crashed. Any way to find out how/why?

    Poor router barely held on until it's power cord was bumped completely out just now. sigh
