What is VAR ?



  • Noob question ..  I was looking at screenshots of other peoples pfsense dashboard and most of them do not have VAR beside the disk usage

    Mine is..

    / (ufs): 0% of 436G
    /var/run (ufs in RAM): 5% of 3.4M

    and I have no idea why it has %5 and how to make it 0 and why there is even a VAR there in the first place.

    Making it 0 will crash your pfSense. Leave the thing alone.

    As you can see from the snapshot, it may be using whopping 3.4 MiB of your RAM maximum. If that's an issue, you have more important issues to solve.



  • thx dr. 
    I thought I had somehow made a partition only 3.4MB in size when I installed pfsense and was filling it up!
    I understand now that the bottom part  /var/run (ufs in RAM)  is what is in RAM and not taking up space on my hard drive.
    Alls ok now no issues here anymore!
