Description

pfctl -ss is taking consuming large amounts of CPU and taking much longer than it should to output data on 2.6:

I see that the fix was applied to 2.5 RC but is missing in 2.6:

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Regression
  • Priority changed from Urgent to Normal
  • Plus Target Version set to 21.09

As I mentioned on #12045 we are aware and it will be automatically addressed during the next upstream sync. 2.6.0 is in early development and is not expected to be suitable for production use for some time.
