    CPUs + server resource

    Hello eveybody,

    I'm runing Hivemail software on a dedicated server with the following option:


    Website is at www.id7.com with +/- 6000 mail accounts
    The problem is that the processors are working hard with Hivemail. I see in the server status that CPU is flashing red.
    Before changing of software I would like to know if there is a way of "helping" the server with a better CPanel configuration.
    Removing some options like awstats...

    hello biotic,

    I'd love to be of greater help than I'm about to be, but I'm sure there will be better help along soon...

    Yes, you are right awstats is resource hungry and disabling/removing it should help. I'm sure there are lots of points to think of before doing so i.e. if you need it [awstats] could it be run more efficiently? From my perspective it runs far too often but I haven't found out where this is coming from yet (anyone?). Personally I'd like to run it more efficiently before possibly dropping it all together.

    Good luck with the outcome ... keep us (me :eek: ) updated on what you do and how it pans out.

    Clicking on your site link throws this up

    Scan type: Realtime Protection Scan
    Event: Virus Found!
    Virus name: Trojan.Moo
    File: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1S1M3WH\cursor[1].ani
    Location: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1S1M3WH
    Computer: YOUR-O3Q7XTM3HM
    User: Owner
    Action taken: Clean failed : Quarantine failed : Access denied
    Date found: Tue Feb 08 23:05:17 2005

    Anyway, 6000 accounts? Just 150 accounts with basic mail access can kill a server if even one of them is being spammed to hell

    You sure its hivemail taking up your resources?
