Rule Usage

  • Hello,

    New to pfSense. I'm currently managing a disastrous list of rules from a previous employee that I replaced. Is there a way to see when a rule was last used? I need to clean up the rules and I'm sure not all of these have been used recently. Rules go back for years.


  • If the previous admin isn't logging the rules to a syslog server, I'd suggest running pfctl -z from Diagnostics -> Command Prompt, it will clear the hit count on the rules and wait.

    When was the firewall rebooted last, the counts would have zeroed?

    Post up your rules.. Lets take a look see if any are just pointless.
