Default Cyrus imap causing high load average

Hi all,

I hope some can help me with my problem.

I've a server running Cyrus imap on Debian 6 Squeeze, and it's being used by 150 user (aprox).

When imap max processes is reached, load average starts to increase, so I set maxchild to 1000.

The max childs reached is around 700 now, so load average is not increasing. But there I think there are a lot of childs that could be killed (some of them are older than one month).

Could anyone help me to find a solution for that problem?

My configuration for imapd is:

imaps cmd="imapd -s -U 30" listen="imaps" prefork=0 maxchild=1000

Could anyone try to find a solution?

Thanks in advance
