modemlights fails checking IMAP mailbox under heavier load
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:32 EDT
Description of Problem:
When the system (I don't know whether it's client or server, because my machine
serves is both) under hevaier load (i.e. installing a bunch of RPMs), the
modemlioghts applet sometimes fials to check my inbox.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fairly easy I hope (it's happened a number of times to me in the last few days)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup your system to monitor inbox via IMAP (preferrably on same system?)
2. Put system under (constant) load
Message appears that inbox couldn't be checked
Inbox gets checked properly
I guess it's running on some timeout, as I can find the following in the logs:
Aug 15 08:12:15 wombat imapd: Login user=nils
Aug 15 08:12:15 wombat imapd: Command stream end of file, while reading
line user=nils host=wombat.dialup.fht-esslingen.de [10.0.0.1]
Aug 15 08:12:15 wombat xinetd: EXIT: imap pid=3915 duration=6(sec)
I'm assuming you mean the "inbox monitor" not the modemlights applet?

Uhm yes. It's been a bit late that night.
