Description

All - wasn't quite sure which to attribute this to as its a package, but is impacting standard operation.

Synopsis:
  • When upgrading a package where the upgrade must stop the service, the Service Watchdog is restarting the service before the upgrade of the package completes. Appears to completely stall some updates where the update process takes some time to run with the service stopped.
  • Upon reboot, while reviewing syslog - the Service Watchdog is starting services before pfSense [itself] normally starts a given service. Suspect that this could cause services to start in an abnormal order and potentially create dependency issues.

Noticed this upon trying to assess a recent issue and watching syslog information where virtually every process upon reboot was started first by the Service Watchdog and when the system starting of that same process occurred - the system initiated startup failed.
