Help with sg-3100 memory and storage overallocation; pfBlocker

I’ve got some thing I don’t know how to solve.

  • I used to get the below error fairly often. I get it rarely now. Happen when I disabled GeoIP blocking in pfBlocker. I’m a home user and hoping AT&T will be doing that for me (have gigabit fiber).

PHP ERROR: Type: 1, File: /usr/local/pkg/pfblockerng/, Line: 2521, Message: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 50331656 bytes)

  • The disk usage is slowly creeping up; currently at 77% used. Figured out it was pfBlocker logs. Purged them a few weeks ago but don’t currently remember how to do it. Is filling up storage normal, and how do I purge them? Last time I purged it reported like 112% disk usage.

The first time this happened restarting the firewall did not help and it actually did not recover. Had a very difficult time recovering from backup config.

Hello @mexitechie, did you manage to resolve this and how did you do it?

I ended up removing pfBlocker and should be using Quad9. I’ll have to look into it again and setting up pfBlocker. After removing never had the storage fill up again.
