Odd issue on a Soekris 6501-70 (ongoing)
This has been occurring since pfSense 2.01 and continues into pfSense 2.1 Release.
On each reboot, a number of pflogd processes are spawned (usually 3-4), consuming 100% CPU between them. It continues using 100% CPU until they are kill -9 terminated, though the system continues to work, albeit slowly. They don't respawn after that, and everything functions normally until the next reboot.
This happens with even with all packages removed. Any advice?
More details please. What packages are you running? How is the box setup?
Others running that hardware do not seem to be suffering those symptoms.
