Re: diagnosing a "killed" message

 You may want to ask the sysadmin for the machine on which your process
runs on. The "killed" means that the process was terminated by someone or
something that has super user privs.

 Ask your sysadmins if they are running any performance monitoring tools
which have been setup to kill processes.

I am running mhonarc 2.2 against a large email file (ca. 1200
messages) and about 2/3 of the way through "writing databases" I get
an abrupt "killed" message.  I am guessing that what is happening is
either 1) the process is running out of memory or 2) there is a
corrupt or bad email message in the file.  

How can I diagnose this problem?  I am a relative Unix novice.
