conntrackd High CPU


Hi Guys,

I have two Vyos routers as VM’s and there VRRP between the two routers, recently i noticed a high cpu load on the active router the conntrackd is taking all cpu resource, i’m not sure how to check and see what is causing the issue, has anyone faced the same issue before?

any help would be much appreciated

config-trap disable
group {
network-group BLACKLISTED {
network-group DMZ-NETWORK {
