Snort memory problem



  • Hi
    bellow is memory status of psense

    Mem: 296M Active, 32M Inact, 88M Wired, 372K Cache, 111M Buf, 576M Free
    Swap: 2048M Total, 2048M Free

    I can see i have still 576 MB free memory

    but pfsense snort interface giving bellow messages

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 509 bytes) in /usr/local/www/snort/snort_blocked.php on line 347

    What shall i do ??
    thanks



  • Its saying that your block list table in pfsense is huge and php ran out of memory.

    You can get rid of that error by removing the blocked ips from the snort2c pf table.

    and putting them in another table.

    "You can get rid of that error by removing the blocked ips from the snort2c pf table."

    I have removed every thing from Block log and alert log. it does not have anything in there

    Or php programm was eating too much memory almost 99% of the cpu .

    what shall i do ??
