Default spamd Interrupted system call

Hello,

i have a problem on 1 of my mailservers. The software configuration is like this: QMAIL, Vpopmail, courier-imap, Qmailadmin, MySql, Spamassassin, clamav. It has been working for months without any problems bu suddenly spamassassin refuses to work giving this in the log:

Code:
connect to spamd on 127.0.0.1 failed, retrying (#1 of 3): Interrupted system call
after a manual restart it works a couple of minutes as expected and then the problem happens again...

Any ideas?

Thanks

Does spamd cause a high system load, or does your system run out of memory?

i have tried different versions of spamassassin, the behavior from my previous post is of the latest stable i downloaded from the web - in this case the system load is normal (have not checked the memory).

But when i install spamassassin package from my distro repository, i get VERY high load something like this just happened about a minute ago:

Code:
top - 12:42:19 up 126 days, 23:39,  4 users,  load average: 77.91, 94.27, 70.22
both versions are tested with the same settings of spamd

Might be a hardware problem. Did you check the memory (e.g. with memtest)?
