dhcpdump is available in ports in the net/ category.

comment FreeBSD Ethernet NIC driver not recognized
A GENERIC kernel with the updated re should work OK, if it's going to work at all!

comment FreeBSD Ethernet NIC driver not recognized
That means the re driver is already built into the kernel. I think, if possible, you need to try rebuilding the kernel on the affected system to ensure the version of the driver that gets built in to the kernel is from the updated source files.

Does the re driver show up if you run kldstat? If not, try adding if_re_load="YES" to your /boot/loader.conf and reboot.

comment Total CPU usage and CPU usage under processes list is different in FreeBSD top implementation?
I'm afraid I don't know without digging through the top source. It's probably to do with sample intervals, but that's just a guess.

You can try tools like systat, tcpdump and netstat to get an idea of network load. vmstat -i will show what's generating interrupts, and might be a good place to start.

comment Firefox and firefox-esr packages in OpenBSD 5.5
The easiest way to do this is with a shell alias: alias ff="firefox-esr" in your ~/.profile should do the trick.

comment rsync causing errors after sync
Try enabling logging in your rsync invocations. Might show up any odd behaviour from rsync. The problem sounds like it might be caused by two processes wanting to access one of the updated files at the same time - the server reading it to serve a request, rsync to write an updated version. You could try using --blocking-io to see if it helps.

comment rsync causing errors after sync
Do you restart the server/app as part of the update procedure? The error message suggests that might be what you're missing, to ensure a clean environment started from the new version of the code. I am not a PHP developer, though, so I may have it wrong...

What are the "errors" you get in production?

comment Firefox and firefox-esr packages in OpenBSD 5.5
What shell are you using? You might have to rehash so it detects the newly installed program. If that doesn't work, is the executable perhaps called firefox-esr?
