I'm not sure if it safe to remove it, but to stop it should be safe. I let Till or someone else answer if it's safe to remove it.

If you would remove it then you would remove amavisd with it and if it would not be needed then it would not have been part of the perfect setup tutorial. So what I told you above is to stop it and not to remove it.

So Till you mean just kill the PID related with spamd?
Any idea why the free memory is jumping too much?
Could it be the cause of the crash of yesterday in one of the server? (they was online working perfectly for like 8 months)

Thanks
Michele

No. On linux you stop software by using the start /stop script in /etc/init.d/

Hello,
unfortunately also without the spamd process, the usage of memory is jumping, in both servers, really a lot.
For example srv1 (4GB ram) is jumping from 1.8GB free to 30MB free... srv2 (1GB ram) is jumping from 500MB free to 20MB free...

Any suggestion?

Thanks
Michele

Thats ok. The Linux kernel uses all free ram to cache harddisk requests. As long as your swap dont get filles 100%, then this is the normal and intended behaviour of the Linux kernel.

Hi Till,
thanks for your answer.

I'm really happy to know that it's a normal behaviuor...

Anyway I still don't know how was possible the crash of srv1 2 days ago... it was something related with the segmentation fault... I've run a test of the RAM, but it was fine, so it was not an hardware fault...

Do you have logs when the system crashed? They are usually zipped.
