pfSense 2.4.5-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)
As the title says, after reboot all installed services come up in the FreeBSD main GUI except iperf (specifically Description: iperf Network Performance Testing Daemon/Client):
iperf 3.7 (cJSON 1.5.2)
FreeBSD pfSense245p1.novuscom.net 11.3-STABLE FreeBSD 11.3-STABLE #243 abf8cba50ce(RELENG_2_4_5): Tue Jun 2 17:53:37 EDT 2020 email@example.com:/build/ce-crossbuild-245/obj/amd64/YNx4Qq3j/build/ce-crossbuild-245/sources/FreeBSD-src/sys/pfSense amd64
Optional features available: CPU affinity setting, SCTP, TCP congestion algorithm setting, sendfile / zerocopy, authentication
iperf did show up "green" as a service running in the main pfSense GUI before I restored pfSense from an earlier backup, but not after the restore.
I have since uninstalled and re-installed iperf from the System / Package Manager / Package Installer in the pfSense GUI, but the issue persists.
Note that, if I launch iperf server from the command line as follows:
Server listening on 5201
and subsequently click to restart iperf from the GUI, all is well and iperf shows up "green" in the main GUI as a running service.

Issue resolved (Duhhhhh...)
In the pfSense GUI, under Diagnostics there is a menu item named iperf Server. From there, there is an option to start the iperf server. When that is done, the iperf service is "green" in the pfSense main GUI.
