Shhh ... ;) This thread has been enormously interesting. It *has* exposed

run its course, please?
I'm not really clear it has exposed anything. Properly configuring your
database backend has always been known to be needed. Properly
configuring the transactions logs is well known. Having proper hardwrae
is a given. The index corruption is questionable, since it is not clear
that the OS is properly configured, since it is at the OS level that the
memory allocations fail.
Unknown chappie comes swanking in with all sorts of promises (yahoo, 50
Mio users, "I can do it for FLOSS, given the chance", funny use of
English) and immediately falls flat on his face, whilst we know that
heavy loading works for you, Buchan and no doubt many others. You and
others attempt to pick him up, dust him off and start him off over
again. The whole thing is worth gold,
Obviously "Properly configuring your database backend has always been
known to be needed" is being learned, in this case. The dialog is
"Having proper hardwrae is a given". Obviously not, in OP's case :->>>
"The index corruption is questionable, since it is not clear that the
OS is properly configured, since it is at the OS level that the memory
allocations fail". Could be, but I (with my minuscule and underloaded
systems) and others have had the same thing with 2.2.12.
As I said, let it run its course. I wonder what the acceptable
alternative would be. Sun, Netscape, IBM? Windows AD? For me, OL 2.2.12
(2.2.13 in the works) is an unbelievably stable, relatively easily
configured and versatile engine. And I'd like to see whatever assertions
as to the opposite proved wrong, *as well as* a final choice of
appropriate hardware, OS and configuration details.
We make out of the quarrel with others rhetoric
but out of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.
