Debatch delay once more.
(Copy sent to Andrew as he doesn't read this list)
This has migrated from the Hermes mailing list, as it seems as if the
problem is with MPro.
Recently I've been having a long delay, often about 80 seconds,
between mail arriving from Hermes and its arrival in MPro. During this
delay the computer is stiffed.
It's only been happening for a month or so, and as far as I know I
haven't changed anything that could be relevant. ARMX6, running RISC
OS 5.23 (30-Jan-16), by the way.
An experiment was suggested on the Hermes list:
1) Quit MPro
2) Download messages to Hermes
3) Re-start MPro, and see whether the delay happens before or after
In addition, I kept and eye on the Hermes MailDir.mailin.spool
directory as the download happens.
Result: The message appears in the spool directory as soon as it has
downloaded, and there's no stiffing at that stage. The delay and the
unresponsiveness occur as soon as MPro is run.
Any idea, anyone, as to what's happening. And, Jim, it's not the thing
about too many files in NewsDir's Backup folders, as I've always had
lots of files there :-)
