HELP !!!! My mail server is getting swamped
I have a mail server that is being maxed out by all of this effin spam. :evil:
dual PIII 500 cpus
1 gig of ram
4 x 36 gig scsi drives (raid5)
RedHat 9 linux
we have 2 spamd daemons running .
70% of the time , the system is rocking.
the other 30% of the time , both cpu's are above 90% , the spamd's are the resource hogs.
When this happens , everything just crawls .
We are trying to tune the filters , but most of the rules are being used heavily.
Do I need more horsepower ? Should I get a bigger box ?
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
