Subject SpamAssassin-3.1.5 often spamd child process consuming 99%CPU
Date Mon, 02 Oct 2006 20:31:24 GMT

since the owner of that list does not reply to any mails looking for 
help ( I have been registred here for several years under 
Volker/, but my postings do not appear here anymore) I 
had to set up a new account.

Following problem:

I am running SpamAssassin-3.1.5 under FreeBSD 5.4 with procmail and 
spamd daemon.

2 weeks ago I updated SpamAssassin to the current 3.1.5 version. 
Meanwhile very often the TOP command does show up  "spamd child 
(perl5.8.8)-processes" consuming nearly 90% CPU time what results in a 
bottle neck for the other processes i.e. my apache and mysql server.

I disabled razor2 and DCC in my meanhwile because I thought the 
problem could derive from internet connections not timing out but the 
phenomen still exists.

Those 90%-consuming spam child processed did not show up under my older 
spamassassin 3.1.2.

Does anyone have an idea what is going on here and how I can solve that 

Thanks and best regards
