From /var/log/maillog:

Feb  1 08:26:10 mail amavis[13931]: (13931-17) (!!)TROUBLE in check_mail, but must continue (1): update_snmp FAILED: update_snmp_variables: BDB S c_get: BDB0061 PANIC: Invalid argument, No such process. at (eval 93) line 140.

This is the error that starts the issue each time.
After that, this error appears several times per second:

Feb  4 04:19:09 mail amavis[60847]: (!!)TROUBLE in child_init_hook: BDB can't connect db env. at /var/amavis/db: BDB0087 DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery, No such file or directory. at (eval 93) line 338.

Only solution is first to stop the amavisd service.
Then perform kill -9 on the surviving amavisd process.

My users are not happy that their mail is being queued several times per week wink

This seems the same as http://www.iredmail.org/forum/topic1203 … t-var.html , which was also on FreeBSD 11

I upgraded recently from FreeBSD 10 to 11, and then installed iredmail. This issue never occurred on FreeBSD 10...

Kind regards,
Wim

Did you upgrade all packages with ports tree?

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

Seems some problem with bdb database. Please try to remove all bdb files under /var/amavis/db and restart Amavisd service.

I had tried this already smile

But I tried it again, to be sure, and same thing just happened again... sad

Try this: You can find setting "$enable_db = 1;" in Amavisd config file, set it to "$enable_db = 0;", restart Amavisd service again.
