Possible to see unused rules?
« on: November 14, 2017, 09:31:13 am »
Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to see unused rules so I can cleanup my system a little bit.
I do know that you can do it with iptables:
iptables -L -v, and it will show u the usage stats, is it possible in pfsense?

Thank you !

Just look at the states column of the rules, if it stays at "0/0 B" then the rule hasn't been hit (yet).

Upgrade to a supported release, your version is too old for that feature.

As @jimp said that version doesn't shows that kind of info. You should upgrade, besides the blue color (netgate) pfSense now looks kinda more "pretty" and I love the design of the dashboard widgets.
