First Ever crash



  • Yesterday (Dec. 17th 2017 around midnight) my pfsense router randomly crashed.

    I was playing my Xbox One, when it happened, I noticed the game couldn't communicate with the servers, then I heard my PC say it lost connection to my teamspeak server.  Then a few seconds later I hear the pfsense PC do its POST beep.

    I submitted the crash report, was wondering what caused it?

    After it came back up I noticed 2.4.2 was available so I had it update to that.



  • So…  Have you been running it for an hour or 5 years?



  • Have you checked syslog to learn what caused the crash…that should have been your first step before posting!



  • Been running it since March 12, 2016.
    If you're wondering about 2.4.2    I've been running that no issues for like 25 days.

    I checked the system.log and all I see is this…

    I was hoping to get something like this, where they could see my report I submitted via my IP.



  • No idea.  I generally don't even worry about reboots unless they are chronic.

    I have never had any computer of any kind that didn't reboot ever in 6 months or a years time.  It would be nice though.



  • Nice run time!
    Last machine I ran updates on had 102 days on it, but then had to reboot it for the update  :'(
