What sort of flowthrough can this software handle.

Anyone have any stats they are willing to share.

Thanks.

Nathan,

LogSat support can give you a more definitive answer but I can throw a couple of thing your way.  There are many variables that can effect the volume that the software can handle.  The size of filter lists, number of CPU's in the server, memory allocated to the Database server and more so the question is not a straight forward one.  On my server, I am handling an average of 50,000 messages per day without any problem.  On a test bed, I flooded the server with 25,000 per hour for about 2 hours and still had no issue. Perhaps, if you came up with how much traffic you need to handle, someone can let you know of any issues.  It is very important that you list what platform you are running on, what the memory and cpu are, what database you intend to use and any other system parameters you have.

 

Regards,

Dan S.

Nathan,

Our biggest customer has used SpamFilter on a server that handles about 1 million emails/day, with about 100-300 concurrent incoming connections at any given second. With that load, the SpamFilter process was using on average 30% processor time, and had a memory footprint of about 30-60MB of RAM.

As a comparison, our own production server is an old P400 with 128MB of RAM, and SpamFilter on it handles in total comfort about 15,000 emails/day. That server could handle 2-3 times that amount of traffic.

Please note that these numbers are for installations with very few blacklist and keyword.entries. If users choose to have thousands of keywords to filter emails, this will affect performance.
