Spamassassin and available memory
1 minute read

It seems like the new Spamassassin 3 has some serious problems relating to memory usage:

7122 root      15   0  660m 332m 4692 D  0.0 43.8   8:18.64 spamd
7123 nobody    15   0  287m 257m 4692 D  0.0 34.0   0:17.01 spamd

As my server “only” has 768MB memory, this causes some problems, in fact, it uses the full 512MB of swap it also has.

This has happened three times in the last hour, and is now getting unbearable.
