100% CPU usage
I'm running pfsense 2.0 RC3. The snapshop that was built on July 4 I'm noticing that the CPU usage has been stuck at 100% now for the past few days.
Memory usage is at or around 34% most of the time. It's still quite responsive though. I don't think I noticed it at first so I'm not sure if it was like that when I first did the install. Please let me know if you need any more information.
Some additional Information. apinger seems to be hogging the CPU time

I had my CPU running much higher than normal a couple of times with two different nightly releases of 2.0 and it turned out to be the Avahi package. I uninstalled then reinstalled Avahi and the problem went away. This was the same issue both times that my CPU activity spiked up. FWIW I also tried rebooting to no avail, it took uninstalling then reinstalling Avahi to fix my issue.
Update to a more recent snapshot. See the sticky post on the 2.0 board about fixing your update url.
I am using the 2.0 final version and avahi is eating my CPU… any idea why?
