I found that mysqld daemon is at 100% of a single cpu also i have 16 cpu on box
I think that this is milter problem that cant split on more queues, is possible to have more milter ?

Hi Nicolca,

# use this group for options that older servers don't understand
bind-address =
innodb-defragment = 1
innodb_buffer_pool_instances = 1
innodb_buffer_pool_size = 1G
innodb_file_per_table = 1
innodb_log_buffer_size = 32M
innodb_log_file_size = 125M
join_buffer_size = 512K
key_cache_segments = 4
max_allowed_packet = 16M
max_heap_table_size = 32M
query_cache_size = 0M
query_cache_type = OFF
read_buffer_size = 2M
read_rnd_buffer_size = 1M

I agree with henk this isn't a milter problem. The Milter Inbound count are emails that are in the queue after being processed by the milter, so the bottleneck is elsewhere.

Are you on the latest release of eFa 4? There are some performance fixes that will directly impact mariadb utilization as well.
