From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux; X11; en_US) KHTML/3.4.91 (like Gecko) Description of problem: When receiving mail using sendmail, the server suddenly starts rejecting mail and starts reporting extremely high load averages. This is my personal mail and load is very low. So, far I have been running an i386 system and moved on to a new computer with x86_64 rawhide (both system at the same level, today). ps -ef | grep send shows: root 2674 1 0 08:00 ? 00:00:00 sendmail: accepting connections smmsp 2680 1 0 08:00 ? 00:00:00 sendmail: Queue runner@01:00:00 for /var/spool/clientmqueue tail /var/log/maillog shows: Oct 11 08:55:19 compsci sendmail: accepting connections again for daemon MTA Oct 11 08:55:29 compsci sendmail: rejecting connections on daemon MTA: load average: 132085 Oct 11 08:55:44 compsci sendmail: rejecting connections on daemon MTA: load average: 383773 Oct 11 08:55:59 compsci sendmail: rejecting connections on daemon MTA: load average: 1000873 Oct 11 08:56:14 compsci sendmail: accepting connections again for daemon MTA Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): sendmail-8.13.5-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.
