Custom rules [message #1485] Tue, 25 July 2006 13:27

Hi,

I downloaded a new custom rule from: http://www.sa-blacklist.stearns.org/sa-blacklist/sa-blacklist.current

When I installed this rule on the server (and of course lint-ed it) it seems that the server was working just fine, however during the day I saw that the server is working *VERY* slowly... so I started the task manager and found out that there are many instances of "spamassassin.exe" (I know this is OK and caused by many concurrent connections) and each one takes about 150,000Kbs. Is this normal? Can this rule really improve the ability of spamassassin to detect spam? Our server has 2GBs of RAM, how much memory should we add in case we would like to activate this rule?

Thanks,
Yuval.

P.S
I forgot to mention that our server handles about 110 sessions simultanously.

These rules are not useful in the way they are currently set up.
Please delete them from your rules directory and wait if the contents are
published as a dns-based RBL in the future.
