Heartbleed Bug gave us a lot of hassle these days, creating patches all around, including my favorite pfsense. First released patch 2.1.1 was quickly replaced by 2.1.2, unfortunately leaving me with mad apinger (aka Ping Monitor). Even disabled it was spitting log entries every 5 minutes, significantly degrading pfsense performance. The only solution found by me was to reinstall dns package (I’ve reinstalled all packages, however the dns fixed the issue). After that disabled apinger remains off, no more fake log entries and my box performance was reclaimed back! Check the screenshot if interested what packages I have installed, hardware, etc.
