FAQ
Many thanks for the help with my previous problem. During the last run
of posting to my large list my server crashed due to lack of memory. I
thought this was due to a change to the exim configuration I'd made but
observations on today's run indicate that it was mailman's python
process taking up all the memory.

What can I do to decrease or limit the memory mailman uses whilst
running? I don't particularly mind if this comes at the expense of
performance.

    James,
    What can I do to decrease or limit the memory mailman uses whilst
    running? I don't particularly mind if this comes at the expense of
    performance.
    I seem to recall one of the recent point releases greatly reducing the
    amount of memory my Mailman processes took up. That is just anecdotal,
    so your milage may vary, but it might be worthwhile to make sure your
    install is up to date. Usually a good idea anyway.

    I saved a little bit by disabling the usenet gateway qrunner, which I
    never use. It still uses a huge amount of RAM though. I'll be
    interested to see any other tips.
