Spamd processes that use 100% of CPU time

Postby lik » Sat Jun 06, 2009 5:35 am

I just investigated a cpanel server that was showing two spamd processes that were using 100% of CPU time.
In case you see a similar problem on your server there is an easy fix released by cPanel, but before we go there please note that this is not a cPanel issue, but it’s a SpamAssasin issue (bug) that is promised to be fixed in version 3.2.4

Until then you should run as root the fallowing command:
Code: Select all
/scripts/autorepair spamd_dbm_fix
