Rate process burning CPU

I'm running 2.1.5-RELEASE.
The CPU is very high by the rate process. Is it safe to kill the rate process? (I use limiters. Does limiter use rate command?)
I know that reboot will solve the problem (https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/1333) but I don't have a maintenance window for the next several hours.
Tks in advance.
1. Update. 2.1 is ancient and that rate bug was fixed a long time ago.
2. Limiters do not use Rate.
3. It is safe to kill rate, it is only used to provide per-host bandwidth stats on Status > Traffic Graphs
