Re: users Digest, Vol 6, Issue 4

Kebba Foon
Hi Gordon,

I did as you advice and found out that i have a lot of spamd children
about 25 of them all taking up to 2.2 % of my memory. i was having this
on my spamassassin options: under /etc/defaults/spamassassin "
 
OPTIONS="--create-prefs --max-children=15 --max-conn-per-child=25
--helper-home-dir -D
--round-robin -x -H -u Debian-exim
--virtual-config-dir=/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf"

i reduce the values from 15 to 5 and  from 25 to 10, the memory usage
seems to go down a bit but its still above 1gigs. also found out that
the clamd deamon is taking up to 6.8% of my memory is this normally?

Thanks
Kebba
