Description Daniel Quinlan 2005-04-12 18:43:55 UTC
When running in normal mode (Apache-style preforking), the fork() code in
spamd should have some protections to avoid forking too often in case there
is an unknown unhandled error.  The rescaling might also be happening too
often when under load.

Triage: simply assigning a reasonable target milestone. Could also be reasonable
for 3.1.1
Comment 2 Justin Mason 2005-05-10 20:09:09 UTC
a less vague bug report would be welcome here ;)
Comment 3 Daniel Quinlan 2005-05-10 20:31:36 UTC
Well, we know when we fork.

We can probably make some sort of maximum speed estimate (no rules, no parsing)
that will last forever.

If we fork faster than that, something bad is up.

no action -> moving off 3.2.0
