ossec-Maild High CPU Utilization

Unread post by SHooSH »

Installed OSSEC on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and just noticed that ossec-Maild is causing the CPU to experience high utilization.

Restarting the service or rebooting the system only provides temporary relief for the CPU.

Suggestions on what to look would be appreciated.

Code: Select all

PID USER      PRI  NI  VIRT    RES   SHR  S   CPU%   MEM%   TIME+     Command
PID ossecm     20   0  24756  2764  2512  R.  96.7    0.0   10h46:36.  /var/ossec/bin/ossec-maild
