- NG Firewall firmware versions 4.2.x
The firewall stops forwarding traffic. Following entries are displayed in the in the "Log" > "Box" > "fatal.log".
Fatal +0100 [box_Control_daemon] Box service boxfw is NOT active
Fatal +0100 [box_Firewall] [Main] Process: Request handler got signal 25 lastPos=1
This problem occurs if the firewall handles high traffic load and thus generates huge log files. When the log file size reaches 2 GB the firewall crashes.
To solve this problem cycle the logwrap in short intervals. Insert the following cronjob on the box and run it every 2 hours:
/opt/phion/modules/box/boxsrv/logwrap/bin/logwrapd -w & &>/dev/null
Do not run the cronjob between 01:00 and 02:00 am. This would invoke a conflict between logstor and logwrap, as logstor as well runs at this time.
