Issue with "Status: Load Balancer" when rebooting pfsense
When I reboot pfsense, the "Status: Load Balancer" screen looks like the attached screenshot for a few hours and then corrects itself. Anyone know why?

Is the "apinger" process running? (Diagnostics > Command, "ps uxawww | grep apinger")
I have no idea. ??? I get this when I run that:
$ ps uxawww | grep apinger
nobody 382 0.0 0.1 3156 1216 ?? Ss 5:39AM 0:38.34 /usr/local/sbin/apinger -c /var/etc/apinger.conf
root 1605 0.0 0.1 3492 1332 ?? S 2:17AM 0:00.01 sh -c ps uxawww | grep apinger
root 1607 0.0 0.1 1684 1056 ?? D 2:17AM 0:00.00 grep apinger
Not sure what that all means though. ???
When it's showing up blank.
If apinger is running that screen usually has data filled in.
Though it might log an error in the system logs, too.
Just rebooted pfsense to get it in this state.
Then ran the "cat /tmp/apinger.status" command.
Only returned this result: $ cat /tmp/apinger.status
Once again, not sure what all these commands mean :P Just following your instructions blindly.

Anything related to apinger in the system logs?
It started working again since my last reboot, so rebooted again just now to get it to the problomatic state. This is what I get in the system logs regarding apinger:
