    Hi,

    I had a couple server crashes in the last week and I think it's available memory. Does this look strange to you with so many mysqld/mailman processes? I understand the 5 mailscanners, named and httpds, but I don't understand why so many mysql and python processes. Anyone spread a little light for me?

    Thanks,

    Dear elor,

    Please try the script:

    /scripts/fixmailman

    The should fix the problem regarding Mailman.

    Check to see if you have allowed persistent connections to database. That could be a reason why you see unclosed mysql connections.

    Regards,
