    Hi.
    Antirelayd is taking all the CPU usage.
    Server load goes up and down all the day.

    PID USER PRI NI SIZE RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM TIME CPU COMMAND
    17472 root 25 0 1496 1496 1196 S 72.6 0.1 12:58 0 antirelayd

    Sometimes is goes to 99% permanently running.
    I restarted exim, but the antirelayd goes again to 80-90% of CPU usage.

    CPU states: cpu user nice system irq softirq iowait idle
    total 98.0% 0.0% 1.9% 0.0% 0.0% 0.0% 0.0%

    Any help?
    Thanks

    That's odd. Have you tried re-installing exim to see if that fixes it? If so, I'd logs a support request with cPanel and have them look at it:

    /scripts/updatenow
    /scripts/exim4

    One final thought, none of your partitions are full, esp. /tmp?

    I'm running /scripts/upcp --force before the exim installation.
    The problem is that up2date is running for 100 minutes.

    What should I do? Kill pid and start again?
    Or I must wait?

    Thanks,

    Looks like cPanel have fixed this now, so you will need to do a upcp.

    Hello there,
    I know this post is Old, but is the only one I found something about my problem and maybe some of you can help me. For days I'm trying to fix this issue but anything I do resolve the problem.

    The antirelayd is the top process and always eat between 10 and 80% from cpu. Exim and cPanel has been updated and nothing fix.. If you have some tips in how can I optmize this service I would thank you.

    Here is the top screen:

    That's most likely unrelated to this thread. Whenever I've seen what you describe it's because you've been running /scripts/fixrelayd

    Have a check of /etc/syslog.conf and make sure there are no duplicate lines. If there are any, remove all but one and then restart syslog:

    service syslog restart

    Sorry... You have already answer: "Whenever I've seen what you describe it's because you've been running /scripts/fixrelayd"

    Was exactly what I did... all time the /etc/relayhosts and /etc/relayhostsusers are empty making trouble to customers.

    So, all times I run /scripts/fixrelayd I have to clean syslog.conf ?

    Thanks

    Yes, if you use that script.

    Alternatively, just run the following to have the same effect:

    service syslog restart
    service exim restart
