Webmail

Posted on September 17th, 2004 by

As anyone who has used webmail.gac.edu lately knows, it has been slow. Especially during peak usage times (10:00am-10:30am). I think that I have found the reason things were running so slowly. The database that holds user preferences was slowing everything down. The webmail software (Horde) was making too may queries, and more importantly, too many locked tables. I changed Horde’s configuration in a couple of ways. Such as removing Mail Loggind in IMP, and removing the Add to Tasks option. Now I believe we can handle a much higher load than before.
