    How do I reduce load average on our server?

    Hello,

    At times the load average on one of our servers shuts up to 10 and higher,
    whereas normally as it should be it is around 0.5
    Of course I see this value via Top and using putty.

    When this happens I see lines about qmailsend and qmail related.
    What is the best way that you can suggest for finding out what causes this
    killer spike in CPU usage and what is the best way to address it? That
    is to bring the CPU usage back down to normal levels?

    Regards,

    Are you sending out large amounts of automated mail? If you do send them out in blocks of 500 or less.

    Hi,

    Sorry for delay in replying.

    Do you suggest doing this via a Wait function that waits say for 1 sec
    and then sends out the next email?

    Or give 500 emails, via loop, to Qmail and then wait like 1 minute and then
    give it the next 500 or wait for some signal from Qmail? If some signal, then what should that signal be?

    Regards,
