100% cpu usage

  • i have a 100% cpu usage when my internet service gets a interruption so my pfsense need to get a new IP from my providers router/modem.
    a lot of time it doesn't get back up. When i login via SSH and use option  16) Restart PHP-FPM

    then i can login to the pfsense gui again and internet also works then.

    But then check i check Top i get

    100.00% check_reload_status

    and it keeps on that 100% forever until i restart the router.

    i did search the forums and i can find some things but cant really find a solution to this and it seems to be there for a long time already.

  • I get a IP from my providers Router a 192. IP but it will still disconnect every 5 min or so. untill i restart the php-fpm.

    i cant disable the firewall on my ISPs router nor adjust the dhcp server or put it in bridge mode :(

  • if your connection goes down every 5 minutes, then there is something seriously wrong.

    are you having conflicting subnets between wan & lan?
