Core 131 with Guardian

Post by lowemissions » May 18th, 2019, 12:16 am

Since new version brings a brand-new intrusion detection system and Intrusion Prevention System, should I remove Guardian.
update from core 130 to 131. Thanks.

It's worth keeping up with the blog:
https://blog.ipfire.org/post/ipfire-2-2 ... 1-released

The guardian add-on is no longer required any more for the IDS to work but still provides means against SSH brute-force attacks and brute-force attacks against the IPFire Web UI.

On a related note: I have no idea why my Guardian instance seems to use 93 Mib of RAM (93664 KB)...it seems very excessive.

Thanks for the information. I don't think it going to be any harm to keep it. So far so good, I didn't notices any performance lost but feel the web browsing is more responsive.
