I am receiving several notices every two minutes, this server records an error like this in the MariaDB error log:

Sep 4 09:32:44 mail mysqld [1155]: 2020-09-04 9:32:44 33911 [Warning] Aborted connection 33911 to db: 'vmail' user: 'vmail' host: 'localhost' (Got an error reading communication packets)

I found a similar topic, but it is already closed and I was unable to post there. https://forum.iredmail.org/topic16256-m … ckets.html

How can I solve? I saw that CentOS 8 is supported by iRedAdmin

I didn't fix this issue. It looks like a MariaDB issue, but i didn't find a solution yet. sad


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

I *think* I know this question.  I recall seeing the same in my logs, but if you dig around on various sites, you may find those are "normal" communication error messages in the mysql protocol, and they self-correct with the next connection, which happens automatically.

Unless you're seeing messages not delivered or major performance issues, you may be able to just ignore or suppress them with a mysql config setting.

I feel that I lose performance with this situation.
If it's a bug in mariadb 10.3, can't we upgrade to 10.4?
