i've a running MailScanner system with Postfix.
When the queue runs full (about 250 messages) I get lots of messages
like this from MailScanner:
Apr 20 12:40:39 server check: Batch completed at 895 bytes per
second (35672 / 39)
Apr 20 12:40:39 server check: Batch (3 messages) processed in
Apr 20 12:40:39 server check: New Batch: Found 195 messages waiting
Apr 20 12:40:39 server check: New Batch: Forwarding 1 unscanned
messages, 1916 bytes
Apr 20 12:40:39 server check: New Batch: Scanning 3 messages,
It needs a long time (about 30minutes) to clear the queue because
MailScanner is too slow.
There are lots of messages in the queue that shouldn't be scanned
because I've setup a own scanning rule (scan.messages.rules). So I think
this messages should get processed very fast by MailScanner, but they
Here are my settings in the MailScanner.conf file:
Max Unscanned Bytes Per Scan = 10000
Max Unsafe Bytes Per Scan = 50000
Max Unscanned Messages Per Scan = 10
Max Unsafe Messages Per Scan = 10
Maximal MailScanner children:
Max Children = 4
I've got played with the Unscanned-/Unsafe-settings with no success. Can
you give me any hints to speed up things?
Thanks in advance.
