vthrottle lives again
i have decided to resurrect vthrottle, the
sendmail virus throuttle. why? simply put, it's a milter, so you can
keep state across multiple machines, unlike the sendmail 8.13.x implementation.
so, if you use multiple mail servers, you can keep throttle state across
them all. i decided to try and just make it work, so i did a couple of
i hope these two options go a long way towards improving the stability of
vthrottle. i also fixed a bug in logging via syslog (wrong facility was
being used, thanks todd) and added some informative logging about the
cache size, too.
- move to an LRU structure for
the list, which gives it a performance boost for frequently hit
- move to a fixed size structure, to reduce the "malloc() death"
in the program.
please have a look at version 0.55 and beta test it for me? thanks ...
i'm very interested to know if this version fixes some stability problems.
