I have a server that has 256MB of RAM. It is running Postfix, MS, MailScanner-MRTG on Ubuntu Server. I have noticed recently that it has been swapping a lot.
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 256 204 51 0 0 18
-/+ buffers/cache: 185 70
Swap: 511 152 359
I am looking to implement MailWatch but am concerned that the server doesn't have an adequate amount of memory. Is this excessive swapping normal? Should I be upgrading the RAM?
Also, my company got hit on Saturday with nearly 1600 spam messages (which is unusual since we only get about 200-300 spam per day). Besides running MS and the default SA rules, what other things do you recommend I configure to help combat the spam?
