PfSense and logging to RAM



  • Hi!

    As I've understood it pfSense full install will save its logs to the hard drive and not to the RAM as much of the documentation states. Is there any way to make the full install save its logs to the RAM? I understand that the logs will disappear on reboot, but I'd like to keep the writes down to a minimum on my SSD and this seems like the best solution.



  • There is a new advanced option in 2.1 that will allow the creation of a RAM disk to store logs on. It is documented somewhere, just search for it.
