Multiple filterdns processes



  • I was doing some testing of ipsec+dyndns and with ps auxww and happened to notice two filterdns processes:

    root    8512  0.0  0.6  4568  1452  ??  Is   10:23PM   0:00.12 /usr/local/sbin/filterdns -p /var/run/filterdns-ipsec.pid -i 60 -c /var/etc/filterdns-ipsec.hosts -d 1
    root   13195  0.0  0.7  4696  1588  ??  INs  10:23PM   0:00.05 /usr/local/sbin/filterdns -p /tmp/filterdns.pid -i 300 -c /var/etc/filterdns.conf -d 1
    root   24079  0.0  0.6  4696  1520  ??  Is    1:56AM   0:00.01 /usr/local/sbin/filterdns -p /tmp/filterdns.pid -i 300 -c /var/etc/filterdns.conf -d 1

    is it normal?

    Btw /tmp/filterdns.pid contains only pid 13195 (shouldn't that .pid file be in /var/run for consistency?)



  • Folks, could you please do a ps auxww | fgrep dns at the pfsense CLI prompt and check how many filterdns processes are running on your system ?

    TIA
