Topic: Performance questions (10 mail/sec)

==== REQUIRED BASIC INFO OF YOUR IREDMAIL SERVER ====

- Deployed with iRedMail Easy or the downloadable installer? Downloadable
- Linux/BSD distribution name and version: Ubuntu 20.04

I need to squeeze every drop of performance out of iRedMail and I have some questions.

Incoming mail volume is 5-10+ mails/second

Outbound mail volume is ZERO

1. Will adding unbound DNS resolver still help performance if my outbound mail is 0?

2. How do I disable virus scanning (amavisd + clamAV)

3. How do I disable daily backups?

4. How do I disable logging?

5. Any other performance ideas?

Thanks!

I actually changed 50 to 10, I don't think it will be quite as high as 50

Re: Performance questions (10 mail/sec)

if you change 50 to 10 that means you just have no clue at all what you are doing

False

Also it's hilarious that you say I don't know what I'm doing and then give absolute trash advice like "use MariaDB" instead of fixing the actual locale issue.

It seems it is you who have no clue what you are doing.

Do you really know what you're doing with this text?

Your situation doesn't look like a normal business email server, would you mind sharing some more details?

Yes I know what I'm doing. I am using it as a bounce inbox.

If I run crontab -u root -e, which crontabs can I safely comment out?

Currently I did backup_pgsql.sh and cleanup_amavisd_db.py

but are there any others?

Re: Performance questions (10 mail/sec)

Try to understand what the task does, then it should be very clear which one you can safely comment out. smile
