WAN quality ping times rising
After a plain reboot the WAN pings are around 10ms for IPv4 and about 20ms for IPv6 HE Tunnel. Then with no logged information the ping times shoot straight to 35ms for IPV4 and 55ms for IPv6 tunnel. Rebooting brings it back to normal pings.
I have been monitoring this issue since 2.2 RELEASE and have done tests on plain vanilla installs as well as with packages like snort, squid, etc loaded. Anyone experienced or noticed the same?

Apinger in 2.2 is broken maybe only in certain cases but for me its a huge step backwards from 2.1.5 there are several bug reports on redmine
Saying Apinger in 2.2 is a huge step backwards from 2.1.5 is quite a statement… I thought it had no where to go but up!
well it took a tank for me about 2 months prior to RC and just the other day it now reporting packet loss i cant find and a simple restart no longer fixes it i've been stopping it now for at least 30 seconds and then start it again
Apinger has issues hear are some bugs :
Mine started behaving mo-betta when I changed:
Latency thresholds 500/100
Packet Loss thresholds 40/65
Probe Interval 10
Thats pretty relaxed settings.
It also worked quite well when I turned off gateway monitor all together… haha
wish turning it off was an option its just not with my isp's i could try backing off the setting, maybe ermal could weigh in on that
bit of an issue looks like it keeps getting pushed off
dont know how any of the other firewalls on the market handle this but maybe the hold some clues?
i am using 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199
10/15 packet loss
1 probe interval
10 Average Delay Replies Qty
50 Average Packet Loss Probes Qty
20 Lost Probe Delay
So nothing wrong on the WAN side? This is a pfsense bug?

Until these issues are worked through, does anyone know a quick & easy way to just restart the apinger service every XX hours on a schedule using cron, or e.g. every day at midnight etc?
