Rt-mailgate memory/cpu hog?

Hi,

I’ve installed rt (latest version) on a dual processor 2.4GHz system w/ 2G
of RAM.
I’ve noticed that rt-mailgate will eat up close to 1G of RAM, and peg CPU
utilization
at close to 99%

Is there any way to tune rt so it doesn’t take as many resources?

Thanks,

-y

You have something strange happening. We run rt on fairly modest boxes
and never before have we seen this.
Could you please provide more details so that we can poke around to see
where the problem could be coming from?
Or maybe you have a “hung” process??

    cheers

Attach login.conf resource limits to the user it runs as?

Please elaborate on “latest version”?

That would be most unusual. We’d need to know a little more about
your configuration before we could offer any suggestions, though.
What MTA do you use? How is rt-mailgate being invoked? Do the
mail logs shed any light? Above all, what version of RT is this?
