However, I'm also currently grappling with a webmail performance
problem. This is why I upgraded Cyrus IMAPd. I've just discovered that,
compared to all my other servers, this platform is having difficulty
maintaining entropy. If I run a complex find operation, I can build the
entropy back up, but it quickly depletes with only a few webmail users
making connections. At first, I thought it was an Apache mod_ssl issue,
but the Cyrus docs mention that APOP requires a lot of entropy, as well.
If anyone has any tips on maintaining entropy on a headless Linux 2.6
machine, I'd appreciate it. I've already switched the drives to
different hardware, to no avail.
