I have problem with freezing FreeBSD boxes with PF on [zone: mbuf_cluster] =
kern.ipc.nmbclusters limit reached last two months. But theres no evidence =
(or I dont know, what I have to check yet) of huge traffic. If I can connec=
t to server yet, I can see, that clusters are really exhausted:

206604/6681/213285 mbufs in use (current/cache/total)
206603/3697/210300/250866 mbuf clusters in use (current/cache/total/max)
206603/3640 mbuf+clusters out of packet secondary zone in use (current/cach=

But why? How I can check what consume this memory? netstat -an, pfctlss -ss=
 shows nothing unusual. What I can check else?

Another question - there are sins that freebsd 10.3 has different access to=
 manage memory clusters, as I can see on graphs over snmp.

And last strange difference between 10.1 and 10.3 on graphs. First is the s=
ame hardware, but freebsd 10.1, second 10.3.=20

What else can I check?

Thank you very much.
