Learn more about pfSense.

This widget requires the installation of the pfsense-api which is a 3rd party package for pfSense routers.

Once pfSense API is installed, you can set the API to be read-only in System > API > Settings.

There are two currently supported authentication modes: 'Local Database' and 'API Token'. For 'Local Database', use username and password with the credentials of an admin user. For 'API Token', utilize the headers parameter with client_token and client_id obtained from pfSense as shown below. Do not use both headers and username / password.

The interface to monitor is defined by updating the wan parameter. It should be referenced as it is shown under Interfaces > Assignments in pfSense.

Load is returned instead of cpu utilization. This is a limitation in the pfSense API due to the complexity of this calculation. This may become available in future versions.
