HAVP antivirus filling hard drive

  • I have been experiencing an issue with pfSense that I originally thought was either Squid or SquidGuard filling up my hard drive.  After quit a bit of troubleshooting, I found out that it was the HAVP antivirus package that was causing the problem.  I have pfSense running on a 20GB hard drive and have been unable to clear it by removing and reinstalling various packages, starting with Squid and SquidGuard.  I had found several posts on the forum talking about issues with Squid so that is why I was so focused on it.

    Today I found using "du -h" that the culprit was clamav.  I uninstalled it without change and eventually had to remove the directory where the updates were stored to clear my disk space.  So…I now have two questions:

    1 - Since I manually removed files for clamav, can I just reinstall it or am I hosed and will need to reinstall the entire pfSense application?

    2 - Is there some way to display the hard disk size on the dashboard page when you log in to pfSense like it shows for RAM usage?


  • hello,
    I don't have an answer for your initial question but I do have a solution for the HDD space display.

    Check out the black theme I wrote, it offers a pie chart display for HDD space usage. http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,23343.0.html

  • Clam AV database /var/db/clamav
