throttle_tracking in MySQL is not being populated

Here is the throttle setting:

Re: IRedAPD error and not populating throttle_tracking

Please try to restart iredapd service and check its log file (/var/log/iredapd/iredapd.log) IMMEDIATELY, i expect to see some log lines which indicates some SQL related error.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

It says this:

Mar 19 09:03:03 mail journal: iredapd Error while create SQL connection: KeyError('vmail_db_user',)
Mar 19 09:03:03 mail journal: iredapd Error while create SQL connection: KeyError('amavisd_db_user',)
Mar 19 09:03:03 mail journal: iredapd Starting iRedAPD (version: 3.5, backend: mysql), listening on 127.0.0.1:7777.
Mar 19 09:03:03 mail journal: iredapd Loading plugin (priority: 60): throttle
Mar 19 09:03:03 mail journal: iredapd No SRS domain and/or secret strings in settings.py, not loaded.

We are only using throttle though, so I don't know why it needs amavisd or vmail. ??

See, your /opt/iredapd/settings.py misses at least 2 parameters. Please double check and make sure you have required parameters:

# For SQL (MySQL/MariaDB/PostgreSQL) backends, used to query mail accounts.
vmail_db_server = '127.0.0.1'
vmail_db_port = '3306'
vmail_db_name = 'vmail'
vmail_db_user = 'vmail'
vmail_db_password = 'password'

# For Amavisd policy lookup and white/blacklists.
amavisd_db_server = '127.0.0.1'
amavisd_db_port = '3306'
amavisd_db_name = 'amavisd'
amavisd_db_user = 'amavisd'
amavisd_db_password = 'password'

# iRedAPD database, used for greylisting, throttle.
iredapd_db_server = '127.0.0.1'
iredapd_db_port = '3306'
iredapd_db_name = 'iredapd'
iredapd_db_user = 'iredapd'

Hello,

As I mentioned we are only using the throttle feature. We aren't using Amavisd or virtual mail. All of the accounts are local user accounts... Thats why I removed that from the config. Why wouldnt the throttle table populate?

Thank you
