Wed Mar 13 16:43:28 PST 2002 — We just completed deploying a new Linux kernel on all of our mail servers. The new kernel fixes a small build error that was preventing all of the RAM on our servers with 1GB of RAM and more from being fully utilized.
This morning we also corrected another small build error with our name servers that prevented Bind 9.2.0 from properly multi-threading. The new properly threaded build isn’t faster than the single-threaded build but better utilizes both CPUs in each server, as well as maintaining responsiveness during cache and zone maintenance. -Kelsey and Nathan
