software was upgraded as well which consists of MailScanner and Sendmail. Both had been keep up to date so it was not a jump in required resources.

The issue I am seeing is that my server load, under the same traffic load, has increased 4 times or more. Where previously we saw a high load on the servers of 5 to 8, we are now seeing 14 to 17. Since the upgrade Sendmail has begun to timeout connections.

do you feel that system goes slower?
i think it's just the matter of calculation method - 6.* may calculate it different way.

just change in your sendmail config the values in place of xx

define(`confQUEUE_LA', `xx')
define(`confREFUSE_LA', `xx')

as just accepting mail isn't a problem i set confREFUSE_LA very high

It is already set to higher than the load we see. I don't "see" sendmail refusing connections. What happens is I try to test sendmail from another server and the connection never completes. I'm knockin', sendmail ain't answering.


In 50 years, our descendants will look back on the early years
of the internet, and much like we now look back on men with
rockets on their back and feathers glued to their arms, marvel
that we had the intelligence to wipe the drool from our chins.
