Issues with DNS Resolver / SNMP services going down



  • I am relatively new to pfsense and everything for the most part has been running smooth. About the same tame every day I had issues with DNS Resolver and SNMP services going down and I would manually have to restart them. I then installed WatchDog and it has been doing a good job of bringing them up but I would like to try to get to the bottom of WHY they are going down. I have attached a picture of what the log shows.




  • Hi,

    Both threads are getting killed because your running low on wap space.



  • @Gertjan:

    Hi,

    Both threads are getting killed because your running low on wap space.

    How do I resolve that?



  • After installing pfSense, did you add other functionalities / packages ?
    If so, remove one or more.
    If the errors doesn't pop up anymore, you're on the right track.

    Go to console, option 8 and use commands like
    top
    and
    df
    to check memory and disk usage.
