Q: dns /exim / inetd (?) slow startup (2)
Hi to all,
I'm still trying to find out what may make name resolution
and exim startup to slow down to a crawl ...
(smrgol is my local host, ip: 10.1.1.1)
If I do a
I get an instant answer, but if I
it takes about 30s until I'm connected. On the other hand
Another problem is exim. It normally is started from inetd,
so I do
telnet 10.1.1.1 smtp
and after I get the connected message it takes about 30s until
exims greeting is displayed. I tried to start exim as a daemon,
and then it takes 30s for the daemon to start up.
- What could cause these delays?
- That ping is instant could mean it's inetd, which takes
such a long time?
- Could it be that wrong file permissions cause something like
this? (I had a problem with exim being unable to write to its
log files, because it was started as user "mail", and its log
files were writable only by "root".
Thanks for your help.
