Did you hit the DCC Clearinghouse free limit threshold (100,000 queries)?

Let's assume its not that for a moment.

Try running this command to reset the map (I think).

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/local/bin/cdcc “load map.txt”

Yeah, this looks like you been cut off (hopefully temporarily) from querying DCC, most likely from the volume.

looking at the output, it says

Code: Select all

# Re-resolve names after 17:13:50
Do you think this is the reactivate time for me to be able to? i've had to blacklist the old customer lol for the time being.

On Another note the Dcc log folder had 30k in files, is there a cleanup job for this folder?

Thanks

Maybe, I think that will be when the list is refreshed.

Hmm...doesn't appear to be a cleanup for that folder......maybe need to do something there...

Sorry, missed this post. You can simply shut down the dcc process (sudo service adcc stop).

Could be wrong, but Housekeeping on dcc should be done by /etc/cron.daily/cron-dccd

Code: Select all

[root@sansspam cron.daily]# ls -l
total 56
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root   26 May 25  2015 cron-dccd -> /var/dcc/libexec/cron-dccd
Where in /var/dcc/dcc_conf

Code: Select all

# days to keep files in DCC log directories
DBCLEAN_LOGDAYS=1
Since EFA is still on Centos6, You can use tmpwatch also to do some housekeeping.
By default, tmpwatch dates files by their atime (access time)

the /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/SpamAssassin-Temp is perfect candidate for tmpwatch

just add in /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch at the end:

Code: Select all

# ----- User defined cleanup-jobs -----
# MailScanner_incoming
/usr/sbin/tmpwatch -u  48 /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/SpamAssassin-Temp
