Hi,

I'm receiving this warning every day: spamd: server killed by SIGTERM, shutting down

I searched in google and saw that more people have same warning, but I not found any solution.

Why happen this?; this is a error/problem?.

Thank you very much. Have a nice day.

Hi @MindServer

Is anything of note occurring in /var/log/messages at the time of the shutdown of spamd? Or is the server under any kind of load when this occurs?


Thank you very much for reply me, this is the info in "/var/log/messages" at the same moment:

Is this always accompanied by an rsyslogd shutdown? Or is that just a one-off? The service is being gracefully restarted by systemd from this output.

It's actually very likely this is being done by Imunify. Do these shutdowns happen when it's not running? Is anything output in /var/log/maillog or the imunify360 log files, there are several in /var/log/?

Hi,

Thank you for your help. I will reply your questions:

-This happens every day at the same hour: 1:34h

-Always when this happens appear similar messages in "/var/log/messages", you can see other example here: Oct 5 01:34:16 spamd[22904]: spamd: server killed by SIGTERM, shutting down

I think more importantly the imunify log files would be helpful here as well.
Thank you very much.

In Imunify360 panel appear this message:

Oct 20 05:03:00 hostname spamd[103694]: spamd: server killed by SIGTERM, shutting down
Sensor: ossec Rule: 1008
Maybe you need the logs in "/var/log/"?, Imunify360 have various file logs, whichone you want I copy?.

Thank you again. Have a nice day.

Actually I think that explains it completely without having to look at the logs. Imunify is shutting SpamD down and that's why you're getting that notice.

Thank you very much. But I want to understand:

-This is a normal task and happens in all servers?, or is a error/problem?.
-I contacted Imunify360 support and they told me this:

This message generates by OSSEC module, that parses a lot of log files, includes /var/log/messages, this event has low severity

Rules Classification — OSSEC

In case if you need to know more about this you should refer to the corresponded log, it seems related to the SpamAssassin module,
In my other message I copied /var/log/messages, but I did not find anything. They told that this could be related with SpamAssassin.

Thank you again. Have a nice day.

Actually.....I think we're both wrong. This isn't Imunify and it certainly isn't spamd shutting itself down. I misunderstood what this was:

Code:
Sensor: ossec Rule: 1008
OSSEC is a 3rd party Open Source Host-based Intrusion Detection System OSSEC Documentation — OSSEC - basically it just monitors logs and reports events. But neither the maillog nor /var/log/messages explain why spamd is being killed. The output for the spamd service is:

Code:
Oct  5 01:34:16 spamd[22904]: spamd: server killed by SIGTERM, shutting down
Which indicates something killed the process. What is present in the maillog just prior to spamd being shut down?

Can you show a little prior to the start point there? Also, you can stop at the point spamd is killed, the startup logs aren't useful in this instance. Are you aware of the server resource usage status at this juncture? If it was a memory usage issue it would be noted in /var/log/messages just prior to the service being killed.

Hi,

-100% secure that not is a Memory problem. In this server we have 128GB RAM and only 1 cPanel account (not did the migration yet).
-SIGTERM kills "smapd" one time every day or two days.
-More extended log:

KILL HOUR: Oct 20 00:01:51 spamd[736449]: spamd: server killed by SIGTERM, shutting down

/var/log/maillog -> you can see that repeat the same line many many many times:

REPEAT THIS LINES DOZENS OF TIMES

If you're not seeing a memory issue or anything of note occurring just before the shutdown and it's only happening every few days I don't think it's a concern. This is pretty standard behavior. Note the output from my own server:
Code:

In this instance systemd is performing the restart which is evidenced by the log comparison.
