Our server is unable to process mail, as clamd keeps dying.

Code: Select all

service clamd status

Code: Select all

clamd dead but subsys locked
Removing the lock and restarting the services allows a few emails through, before dying again.

EFA version (Downloaded eFa Hyper-V image and updated immediately)
Server has 10GB of RAM available;

Code: Select all

               total         used          free             shared   buffers   cached

It had been running perfectly fine since deployment. Nothing was changed, this just started happening. I have cleared the queue and tested. I have bypassed the server, and clamd ran for more than a day okay, as no mail hit the queue. As soon as I sent email to it, clamd died again. Have rebooted multiple times. I have not been able to find anything that helps me resolve the issue.

ANY suggestions on what to check and where to look would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I disabled Yara as per the topic. Has been running for about half an hour okay.

Thank you!
