I'm new to the Zimbra world and I recently setup a Zimbra server in a smal company with 8 users.
The reason we wanted to use Zimbra is they have couple of big mailboxes ( around 8-10gb)
The setup we have is a physical server , 6 gb of ram, and
The problem is that the server keeps filling the memory and it become unable to use it after couple of mins after reboot.
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+
out of free -m is :
I turned of swap cause it was starting to use that and turned of couple of serviced in zimbra we dont use, example: logger, stats
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 3523 3445 77 0 52 2202
-/+ buffers/cache: 1191 2332
Swap: 3814 0 3814
The server went from 8.0 load to around 2 now
Why is it so slow ?
there come java processes that most of the process which is going on , other than that, the cpu seems to be in 20% and running okay,
We are using outlook and thunderbird as imap clients
each account has an external account which fetches mail from a pop server everyone 2 min
