Follow-up Comment #3, sr #105905 (project mhonarc):
Thanks for your feed-back and comments!
I try to answer your questions (1-3), and then add an update (4).
1. the way mhonarc is invoked is indeed as you guessed, on reception of each
and every mail:
~> grep mailapp /etc/aliases
eng-mailapp: "| /usr/bin/python /x1/eng-mailapp/bin/mailapp"
~> grep mhonarc /x1/eng-mailapp/bin/mailapp
mhonarc = '/usr/local/bin/mhonarc'
mhonarc_cmd = '%s -quiet -outdir %s -add -rcfile
/x1/eng-mailapp/conf/mhonarc.mrc -definevar MAILLISTNAME=%s'
cmd = mhonarc_cmd % (mhonarc, dir, elist)
log.exception('problem with mhonarc child process: %s',
log.error('%s exited with status %d', mhonarc, rt)
log.error('output from %s was:', mhonarc)
~> wc -l /x1/eng-mailapp/conf/mhonarc.mrc
I attached this mrc file.
Of course, I am open to suggestions to switch to an other configuration.
As far as I can say, the mailapp script dispatches the incoming mails into
distinct mailboxes, and runs mhonarc on the relevant one.
~> /usr/local/bin/mhonarc -v

3. Isolate an archive... all the errors detected were for the same one
(eng-artix-merge which I meantioned), which has also the highest load.
However, I could not isolate a message, or a pattern. This was the intend of
my convoluted 'head' commands, but I found different patterns in different
4. We may have a general resource problem on this host. At least one other
functionality (generation of rss feeds from wiki pages) is also affected.
