I am in a similar boat to Joe St Sauver and Ron Jarrell wrt expire/expireover.
My system is running inn-STABLE-20011009, and uses CNFS and ovdb with BerkeleyDB.3.3.11
and after a clean start expireover takes a little longer each day. After about
3 weeks I believe, my expireover takes (from the nightly report):
expireover start Wed Nov 14 03:03:31 PST 2001: ( -Z/usr/local/news/log/expire.lowmark)
expireover end Wed Nov 14 09:09:17 PST 2001
lowmarkrenumber begin Wed Nov 14 09:09:17 PST 2001: (/usr/local/news/log/expire.lowmark)
lowmarkrenumber end Wed Nov 14 09:09:18 PST 2001
This is with: /usr/local/news/bin/news.daily expireover lowmark
I also have the "once every 2-4 weeks all the news processes get stuck" problem, ie
they are all in lwp_mutex_lock(). I can kill TERM/9 everything, clean out the __db.???
in the overview dir, and restart. I have not had to reboot after a hang. This lockup
also appears to be quantum-partically linked to my leaving the building, at lunch,
or being otherwise occupied.
