Blank pfSense dashboard issue; Might be that the drive is full…. help?

  • So Im having an issue w/ the dashboard, When I log on to the PFS, my dashboard is blank, has the logo on the top and when going into the interfaces I can see them.

    So I think the issue is related to my drive being full… I remember seeing something about the drive being at 100% when the dash board was working.

    Anyway... Is there a way to clear up the logs or database? to free up space… I do not need to save any data, Just wanted to delete some of the data so I can get back into PFSense…

    I think the reason why the drive is full due to a settings I set for logging and recording data from the firewall.

  • Hi,

    What about asking your drive, or more precis : the file systems ?
    Enter console - go option 8 and type the max word :


    If you can't understand the output of df, post it here, like :

    [2.4.2-RELEASE][]/root: df
    Filesystem                  1K-blocks    Used     Avail Capacity  Mounted on
    /dev/ufsid/54ca20c41b3d50b0 298695208 1143932 273655660     0%    /
    devfs                               1       1         0   100%    /dev
    /dev/md0                         3484     180      3028     6%    /var/run
    /usr/local/lib/python2.7    298695208 1143932 273655660     0%    /var/unbound/usr/local/lib/python2.7
    devfs                               1       1         0   100%    /var/dhcpd/dev
    procfs                              4       4         0   100%    /proc
    procfs                              4       4         0   100%    /proc

    In my case : close to 0% and 6 % - the 100 % lines are special cases.

    Btw : log files are circular and can't fill up the file system.
    And a pfSense which a huge set op parameters (config) won't use more then a couple of Mega ….

    So, no, if the dashboard isn't showing up, it must be something else.
