CARP + Limiters not working in live ( for states which are moving from master to backup )
I noticed, by accident, limiters do not work correctly after a firewall switch due to a carp action.
For instance, a traffic exists and it's well piped by limiters .
You decide to place the master firewall in CARP maintenance so you triger a switch from a firewall to another ( master to slave). All traffics are well switched to the slave firewall . This works like a charm :) .
But the limiters do not work. you realize that traffics initialized by master firewall are not treated by the limiters on the slave .
For new traffics launched after the CARP switch on the slave firewall, it is ok.
So pfsync seems to not correctly transfert traffics to limiter and/or limiter daemon is not able to treat traffic if it had not initialize them.
I've tested different configurations from version 2.4.3 to 2.5.1 -> same results
An Idea ?
