    Hello all,

    Earlier this week I updated the kernel on one of our servers to the latest
    CentOS (4.5), then I disabled webalizer and analog stats.

    Since then my server load has been WAY up (3-6 at all times), as well, now
    email is building up in the Queue and when I attempt to deliver it, it says
    "completed" but does nothing. When I try to deliver a couple
    messages manually, I sometimes get "MTA-imposed quota exceeded while
    writing /tmp/blahblahblah".

    Also, during this time I had turned off automatic updates because I did not
    want to update to CPanel V11 until it was confirmed working. After seeing that
    the launch has been delayed, I re-enabled the automatic updates to RELEASE
    today.

    Anyone have any ideas? I don't really care about stats, but something is seriously up with the Email queue?

    Thanks!

    You'll have to find out what processes are exahusting your server resource(s). Run the command top -c or ps auxfww to see which is doing what.

    Looks like SARE rules were messing up spamassassin, I found the answer in another post, as well CPanel looked into the problem, did an /scripts/eximup --force and I removed the offending .cf file.

    From the other post, it looks like I am going to have to upgrade PERL.
