Php-fpm and gateway timeouts caused by SMTP notification backlog



  • Hi,

    I've had a problem with the webGUI being unresponsive which I traced down to php-fpm trying to send a squillion SMTP admin notifications to an SMTP server IP address which no longer exists (we moved subnets the other month).

    (So if anyone on 2.3.x is troubleshooting php-fpm locking up on you, that's something to check - interestingly this didn't affect me while on 2.2.x so I didn't notice the SMTP configuration issue for some time)

    Now I've pointed it to the correct SMTP server, it's trying to send a backlog of thousands of notifications about a faulty gateway. It's DoSing the SMTP server and I had to disable SMTP notifications.

    My question is: where are notifications cached, so I can clear the backlog and re-enable SMTP notifications? I can't find them :(

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    Try /tmp/notices (according to /etc/notices.inc)
