Slower Pfsense 2.4.4 GUI



  • I freshly installed Pfsense 2.4.4 because during update 2.4.3 crashed so had to reinstall it. everything is working.

    I feel Pfsense 2.4.4 is slower compared to 2.4.3, whenever I apply some rule in firewall or make any changes in GUI, it takes some time to apply.
    Is it just with me or anyone else also feels the glitches?

    I don't have any specific measurements but for me and most others I've seen it is faster or at least seems faster. The switch to PHP 7.2 has improved some aspects significantly.

    Did you configure anything new in 2.4.4? If you activated the new free AutoConfigBackup service that would cause an extra delay when saving settings since it has to wait for the backup to be submitted to the server.



  • yes, it was because of AutoConfigBackup, I disabled it and GUI is damn fast now. Thank you.
