    In my domain log directory (/usr/local/apache/domlogs), I have been accumulating smtpbyte_log files for many domains that I do not host, including:
    yahoo.com-smtpbytes_log
    site.careerbuilder.com-smtpbytes_log
    returns.groups.yahoo.com-smtpbytes_log
    among many others. 46 of them at the moment, but new ones are popping up all the time.

    Is this a known issue? Should I just delete them?

    Looks like an eximstats bug.
    Hopefully will be fixed in next releases.

    Domlogs full of non hosted domains

    /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ is full of logs for domains not hosted on my server also. could this be the reason why the server loads are peaking of late. they are all

    DOMAIN-smtpbytes_log

    must be thousands of them.

    Just wondering if anyone has yet to find an explanation for these files. Looks like they are mail related ... possibly (?) due to the rate-limit feature? Have searched extensively but cannot find an explanation.

    It's been suggested this is a known bug that was introduced in a recent build and corrected just recently. Unfortunately, the fix does not remove all the extra files that were created.

    I did find the following in bugzilla but this is related to WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-R82

    cPanel: want to jump in with more of an explanation :)

    I wish cPanel wouldn't do random stuff like this, the initial though when seeing these files is, bugger looks like the box has been compromised.
