I had just one user who was using 100% CPU when I did a top -c from root for spamd.

Here is softlayers solution:

Now we have increased the spamd child process. Earlier it was only 2 and the recommended value was 15 - 20. This shall have a effect in it.

Also exim panic log is showing a socket time out error which also was quoted as a reason for this since an internal connection originating from the server gets a socket time out due to firewall.


So as a recommended solution, we have now disabled csf and the issue seems to be resolved.

Does this mean I cannot use chirpy's firewall on any of my servers?

Thank you

I turned it on immediately when I went into shock knowing I had no firewall enabled.

I will do some more research. Thank you

salvatore333,

Try this:

cd /home/USER/.spam*

then do this:

rm -fr *

Thank you for the advice ARHS. Can you please tell me exactly what this command does before I run it?

Just being careful, Thanks very much

We had this issue with one of our user’s and we cleared out the spamassassin settings and it solved the high load issue.
