Tcpdump on background
fluca1978 last edited by
I found a tcpdump active on my box:
# ps -auxw | grep tcpdump root 55764 0.0 0.6 5716 2216 ?? S 7:45AM 0:00.01 /usr/sbin/tcpdump -s 256 -v -l -n -e -ttt -i pflog0
I'm not sure this is really wanted. Before dropping to a shell I've seen the pflogs (option 10 on the console), then I quitted and dropped to a shell. Could it be such process related to the previous pflogs session? I killed it and it restarted after a few seconds, then I killed again and now it seem gone. Is something bad happening or is it normal?
