Squid and NTOP stop working after some hours
I am using the update version 1.0.1 of pfsense, i have installed squid and ntop.
both work well for some hours and then stop workind randomly without any modification in the system
How much RAM do you have?
This might be not enough for running ntop and squid. A large swap partition might help but the system will become slow when starting to swap. Monitor your memory and swap usage. I guess it's just running out of memory and is killing the processes due to that.
what is the optimal hardware configuration ?
I am already running a P4 2.6 GHz with 256MB DD-RAM
swap is 256 or 512 Mb i have not changed the default value during initial installation
actual information in system shows :
CPU usage : 3 %
Memory Usage : 63 % (I have noticed that when squid was not installed i have 38 %)
Swap usage : 3 %
Disk Usage : 1 %
Monitor the values at status>system and stresstest your system (like running bittorrents and multiple http downloads).
