Outrageous number of processes running

  • I'm new to pfsense and already loving a lot of the features that it has.

    I have the attached graph from RRD Graphs and was wondering if the large number of processes is normal. This is not exhibited on any of our other pfsense installs.
    The process that is getting out of control is:

    63989 ?? I 0:00.00 inetd: wrapping (inetd)
    there are over a thousand of these.

    the inetd.conf (one line) reads as below:
    tftp-proxy dgram udp wait root /usr/libexec/tftp-proxy tftp-proxy

    Is there anything I need to do, or is pfsense managing this?
