We also see problems like this:

Sep 12 19:30:05 telinux1 postfix/master[889]: warning: 
process /usr/libexec/postfix/cleanup pid 1600 killed by signal 13
Sep 12 19:32:54 telinux1 postfix/master[889]: warning: 
process /usr/libexec/postfix/cleanup pid 1783 killed by signal 13
Comment 2 Petri T. Koistinen 2002-10-11 17:55:32 EDT
And now:
Oct 12 00:53:44 telinux1 postfix/master[24743]: warning: process
/usr/libexec/postfix/cleanup pid 27284 killed by signal 13
Oct 12 00:53:44 telinux1 postfix/master[24743]: warning:
/usr/libexec/postfix/cleanup: bad command startup -- throttling

NDS problem is solved by killing Novell software time to time and restarting it.
Comment 3 Petri T. Koistinen 2002-10-31 09:50:51 EST
Novell sucks. We removed eDirectory. Problem solved, I hope so.
