Running SpamAssassin on an old Pentium
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I'm writing to find out how much overhead will be created by running
SpamAssassin on a P-133 which is already handling quite a few tasks.
The box in question serves as the dial-in server for about 60 people,
runs a caching-only DNS and also serves as a firewall.
Since all these 60 are retired people, some of whom have multiple
sclerosis and other ailments, they often solicit a lot of spam from
around the net. The situation at the moment is that of the mail they get
around 80 percent is spam.
I would appreciate some feedback because I am not a techie and while I
would like to implement SpamAssassin, I wouldn't want to slow down
things any more than they are right now. We have only a 33.6k connection
to the outside world as this is in a semi-rural part of Australia.
The box in question has 96 meg of RAM.
An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.
