It can't be easy as that, because the machine is up for almost half a year and
only recently started to behave like this.
On top of that, for three weeks in a row the customer sent tons of mails from
this server (some promo or other) and nothing happened.
Usually this server takes about 1000 mails inbound and about 500 to 1500 mails
outbound in stride without so much as a whimp.
All the time this happened for the last few days the load never reached 4.00
which I would've expected. And all the time more than 30% memwere unused...
That's why I asked.
