On my ds10l alpha sendmail seem to work fine with the exception
of very long wait time for mailq (sendmail -bp) - about 25 sec.
I'm not convinced it is an alpha problem, so I post to this list.
On a much slower i386 running the same version of OS and of sendmail
it takes less than a second.
# uname -srm
FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE alpha
# sendmail -d0.1
Compiled with: DNSMAP LOG MAP_REGEX MATCHGECOS MILTER MIME7TO8 MIME8TO7
NAMED_BIND NETINET NETINET6 NETUNIX NEWDB NIS PIPELINING SCANF
TCPWRAPPERS USERDB XDEBUG
The only software difference between my i386 and my alpha I can think of
is that on alpha I run IPF:
# grep "= 25" /etc/ipf.rules
pass out on dc0 proto tcp from any to any port = 25 flags S/SA keep state
Is slow response of mailq an indication of misconfiguration?
