Hi.

I still can't figure out why it doesn't work at all.
Every time we get a flood of control messages,
our server gets *very* sluggish.

2 days ago someone has created a lot of new newsgroups (352),
this has taken more than 1,5 hours to process. All this time
the server has been busy doing this and only this. My log files
were full of lines like these:

Feb  8 06:22:58 image innd: controlchan! closed
Feb  8 06:22:58 image innfeed[53143]: ME source lost . Exiting
Feb  8 06:22:58 image innd: innfeed! spawned innfeed!:20:proc:61853
Feb  8 06:22:58 image innfeed[61853]: ME starting innfeed 2.3.4 (20021002
prerelease) at Sat Feb  8 06:22:58 2003
Feb  8 06:22:58 image innd: controlchan! spawned controlchan!:21:proc:61854
Feb  8 06:22:58 image innfeed[61853]: loading /usr/news/etc/innfeed.conf

(innfeed has been restarted 353 times because of losing ME source,
but this is not related to a controlchan issue, it's only as an after-effect
i guess).

How do i investigate what's going on there?

My system is FreeBSD 4.7-Release.
