    Default Server stops responding every Monday morning

    For the past two Mondays, our server has stopped responding just before the workday starts. Last Monday it stopped at 8:11 am and today it stopped at 8:20 am. At these times, users were not able to connect to the server in any way to get their mail, and there was absolutely no activity in /opt/zimbra/log/maillog. I was able to ssh to the server and do a 'zmcontrol status' which showed everything to be running.

    At that point, I restarted Zimbra where it failed to start antivirus successfully. I ran 'zmclamdctl restart' which seemed to work. I did a 'zmcontrol status' to find that mailboxd was not running properly, and it gave the same error after I restarted it. I then restarted the whole server which brought everything back up as it was supposed to be. (See all commands and output up until server restart below.)

    The only thing somewhere around this time that I can see that would affect the system is the spam log rotate at 8:08 am in the crontab:

    8 8 * * * [ -f /opt/zimbra/data/dspam/data/z/i/zimbra/zimbra.log ] && /opt/zimbra/dspam/bin/dspam_logrotate -a 60 -l /opt/zimbra/data/dspam/data/z/i/zimbra/zimbra.log

    But then the question: Why only on Mondays and why did this just start happening recently? At this point I am pretty confused and don't know what else to check. Any suggestions?

    Default

    Mine stopped this morning as well. Bizarre!
    I shut it down and did a restart and everything is fine again.
