Unbound stops after pfblocker cron job or other cause?
I think this may be the wrong location to post it, may be better for unbound and happy to move it if that's the case but I've been troubleshooting my recent pfBlockerNG install and it felt like it fit.
Looks like Unbound stops running after a restart, and I think it's related to the DNSBL list being so large and the restart function not waiting long enough.
Similar to this:
It looks reminiscent of this: [Solved] Unbound fails on restart after pfBlockerNG updates
But it was fixed: redmine, so I didn't think I needed to repeat these steps as it was from 2017.
I've parsed through my logs and summarised what looked like the main points across System, dhcp, and resolver logs. I think the issue occurs at 6:24:11 and I think it's related to the size of the DNSBL list.
