Pfsense memory usage increases slowly

  • Hi, im running the newest pfsense release on p2 400 mhz 386 mb ram, no packages installed.

    When it boots up, it say 24 % memory usage 100 states.

    Right now, it is 52 % memory  usage, 132 states
    I rebooted it last night and it was all the way up to 84% memory usage, still not very many states?

    Does anyone know what could be taking up the memory?  Thanks, I would rather not do an entire reinstall.


  • run "top" from the shell (hit 8 to exit from the shellmenu first). It will show you running processes and the memory that they are using.

  • And we also assume your on 1.0.1.  If you are not, please upgrade.
