Approaching the limit of pv entries increasing either the vm.pmap.shpgperproc



  • Dear all;
    I am getting a notice about  vm.pmap.shpgperproc and vm.pmap.pv_entry_max. I have read number of pf sense forum answers regarding this case but none worked. I have added "vm.pmap.shpgperproc :300 " in the loader.conf but it does not change the variable of the sysctl. How can I change this parameter ? please refer the attachment.

    Your screenshot does not show where you set the suggested variable. Also, settings in loader.conf.local only apply at boot time, so after altering the file you must reboot the firewall.

    I have set in the loader.conf and restarted the firewall. but the set value does not appear when i typed the command sysctl vm.
