Description

sshguard logs an error repeatedly on recent snapshots:

Dec 16 15:52:35 pfsense syslogd: Logging subprocess 63382 (exec /usr/local/sbin/sshguard) exited with status 1.

/usr/local/etc/sshguard.conf:

BACKEND="/usr/local/libexec/sshg-fw-pf" 

: grep sshguard /var/etc/syslog.d/pfSense.conf 
auth.info;authpriv.info                     |exec /usr/local/sbin/sshguard

A user on the forum noted that the log messages may indicate a missing required option in /usr/local/etc/sshguard.conf: https://forum.netgate.com/topic/148978/sshguard-exiting-with-status-1
