    Ping Spikes....

    Well with the help of the new tool I have been using (etherape) I have been able to isolate a ping spike issue.

    Whenever the listserve sends a mail there is a fabulaous pingspike.

    Had had not noticed this befor because I could not graphically see what was going on. So I'm bandwidth limiting the mail server as we speak...

    It was weird enough to have not been just an ISP issue.

    Glad you found out what it was. 8)

    In response....

    I set the mail gateway (sendmail redhat 7.1) to only use 1 percent of the processor time and set it to max at 2 child processes.

    It will "leak" the mail out at a nice pace now.
