rejecting connections on daemon MTA: 150 children, max 150

My mail server handles about 50000 messages a day and sendmail version
is 8.12.10.
From one month sendmail continues to reject connections showing:

rejecting connections on daemon MTA: 150 children, max 150

I tried to increase MAX_DAEMON_CHILDREN from 50 to 150 but nothing !

What can you suggest me to debug and solve this problem ?

Tried a higher value then what its maxing out at? You said you increased it 
from 50 to 150 so that should be clue.

This morning I see rejecting connections are reduced (about 300
against 1200 of last days).
But what happens if I increase sendmail childrens ? My mail server run
also other applications as Squid.
Load average is about 2.15.

I monitored cpu and load average is low (2=F74) so I think problem is
Ram size ?

What do you think ? Free Ram is only 36220k

Oracle Connection Pooling
I am trying to implement Oracle connection pooling for the following code, which was written by someone else. Here is my main question -- this java file creates code that is executed every hour, but once per week, the oracle server is brought down for backup. At that time, I get an error that looks like I have the wrong credentials for the database. For every subsequent attempt to run the hourly process, I am getting a broken pipe error, untl the app server (Web Sphere) gets a restart. My thinking is that, if I implement connection pooling, I can essentially "trap" this ...

[ace-users] Many reactor connections
System info: RedHat Linux 7.3 ACE 5.3.1 Using Select Reactor (defaults) The reactor.size() is 1024. I'm seeing the following problem: After about 130 client connections, I start getting odd behavior. Namely, when I dequeue_head from my ACE_Svc_Handler's queue, I get a message block that satisfies the following (no such message block has been added to the queue:) rd_ptr = 0 length = -1 I think this has something to do with having too many file descriptors open per process. It only happens when I have many (~130 - I'm guessing greater than 128) clients. And the mmore clien...

How to enumerate all raw socket connections of the system without NtQuerySystemInformation?
I want to enumerate all active raw socket connections of the system. First, i know using NtQuerySystemInformation to enumerate all the handles of the system can do it, but i don't want to use it.

So, how to get all raw socket connections like tcp and udp? Regards, ...

http connection problem???
Hi, I recently installed Mandrake 9.2 (yes, I know 10 is out, I already had the CDs for 9.2) When I got into X I set up my internet connection (I have 2 PCs, one runs Win XP all the time, and has Wingate installed with NAT and ENS ennabled. I get my internet on the client through the NAT) so I set the gateway PC to 192.168.0.1 and everything else as normal. I access the internet perfectly in WinXP with these settings, but in Mandrake I can only access websites for a certain ammount of time, usually less than 5 minutes... Then I can suddenly no-longer get to them (Firefox just says "resolv...

Daemon: setgid Operation not permitted
I'm confused by the way my daemon is behaving, and how permissions relating to the groups are working. There are 2 points which don't make sense: 1. When I try to setgid() to a group (thedaemon) of which I am a member, I get an error that the operation is not permitted. 2. When I try to fopen() a file for writing in a directory who's group I am a member of (thedaemon), it fails with a "no such file or directory" error. The directory has group rw permission. Only if I set global rw permission on the directory can the daemon successfully write to it. I'm running Suse 1...

Connection Sharing on demand
Hi, I have a network in my office with about 20 desktops running XP Pro and some of them running Win98, they all have internet connection through ICS on an old PC running Win98. Now, I need a way to restrict the internet connection without restring LAN access, so I'm thinking in using that old PC to run a DHCP server on Linux/BSD/etc to provide basic LAN connectivity, AND providing some sort of dial-up-like connection to internet. So any user who have a logon to connect on the internet can sit in any of the terminals and just dial-in to get connected. I think that can be done with some so...

Rejecting @ RCPT TO:

I would like to configure this on my servers, however my users are not local. We are using the mailertable to route mail to it's final destination. How can i configure sendmail to do this? What I am trying to avoid is having a countless number of bounce-backs sitting in my mailqueue that are addressed to bogus users on Internet mailservers. This is really annoying and costly in terms of bandwidth usage for our company. Can anyone help me please? I am runni...

how to connect the ISP to the ATmega48
OK, largely based on advice received in this group, I'm now trying to use a naked ATmega48 (28-pin DIP) as my controller rather than buying some fancy controller board. :) I received the chip yesterday, along with a shiney new AVR-ISP mkII programmer. Now... how do I get these together? I thought there would be documentation included showing which pins of the microcontroller should be connected to which of the six pins of the female connector on the ISP. But, to make a long story short, I can't find any such documentation. Can someone spare a clue? Thanks, - J...

Strange LAN connectivity
My university LAN connection to my laptop dies after the first initial few minutes. If I want to go online for five more minutes, I have to restart my computer. I don't like this. Even though my browser and my e-mail can't connect after the first minutes, a download in progress somehow stays connected. This goes for AIM too. I am sure it's my computer that's at fault. I've swapped cables with my roommate and, while my line works perfectly for him, I still suffer the same problems with his line. I've scanned for viruses and other nasties; I'm clean. I don...

Rejecting a connection
Hi all, I've been wondering how to reject a connection? Instead of accept() I would like to "decline()" a connection. The only way of rejecting connections I've thought about is to accept() and then close() immediatelly. But would the other end actually receive the accept and then the connection would be dropped?

Persistent connections not limited to one Apache-process?
I've set up a PHP web application where users can log in and open a connection to a NNTP-server. There is a *one-to-one* relationship between sessions and NNTP-connections (i.e. exactly one NNTP-connection per session, and exactly one session per NNTP-connection). Now, I'd like to have these connections be persistent. So I started using "pfsockopen" instead of "fsockopen" and set Apache's KeepAliveTimeout to a very high value. However, this doesn't work all that great: Often browser-connections are closed prematurely and some browsers have trouble with K...

How to Determine TCP Connection State?
Hello! I'm working on what is essentially a proxy in C on Linux, so in order to have a connection between client C and server S, what I actually have is two connections, C-P and P-S (where P is the proxy), with the proxy shuttling packets back and forth as needed. This all works fine in normal cases, but if, say, the server becomes unresponsive, I need to have the connection time out so that the client isn't kept "on the hook" forever. Right now I'm just using a fixed duration timer (a select(2) call) in the proxy before each network read/write, but what I'...
