Understanding pfInfo Status



  • I started exploring and found the pfInfo section and noticed for debug it's listed as Urgent. How can I determine what's triggering this response? I clicked through the logs and noticed a few issues over a past few months, but nothing is standing out.

    Thanks for the help.

    Thats normal, just check several of my boxes and Debug: Urgent shows on all of them.

    I believe this flag is used to only show debug info that is deemed urgent.

    urgent Generate debug messages only for serious errors.

    The pfSense devs are using "debug urgent" so it only shows debug messages for serious errors.
