  • Hi,

    I am getting this message on syslog:

    kernel: Approaching the limit on PV entries, consider increasing either the vm.pmap.shpgperproc or the vm.pmap.pv_entry_max sysctl.
    

    Can someone help me what to do an what this message means ?
    I am using Layer 7 limiter (block bittorrent), squid + squidguard, freeradius2 package.

    I got this the first time. My system specs:
    Intel Xeon 2.13GHz, 4GB RAM, pfsense 2.0.1 AMD64

    Thank you.

    Those come up now and then on FreeBSD lists - since you're basically using FreeBSD in a server role there (mostly squid, and freeradius), suggestions for tuning the values mentioned on the error for FreeBSD in general may be good to follow.

    Have a search/look through the freebsd-stable and/or freebsd-questions archive and the FreeBSD forum.
