Check_reload_status high cpu
I've seen a couple posts on this, and have turned off the IPV6, but still get periodic high cpu loads for check_reload_status. I watch and see that php starts with increased loads, then check_reload_status takes over. this is causing major loss of upload capacity because it takes all the cpu on openvpn is starved.
My upload bandwidth shows this periodic ping-ponging. What else should I look at to fix this issue?
I've attached my upload graph and each valley is caused by check_reload_status taking all the cpu.
I see this in the system.log.

Could this be the cause? I installed squid once, but then reverted to a newer config that didn't use squid. Maybe there is something sitting around that is causing it to try and run? It is not listed under my installed packages.
The issue with squid does appear to have been the culprit. I'm not sure how squid got "installed', when PFSense didn't report it as installed.
To fix, I installed squid, then removed it. I've not had any issues since.
