    I saw this in the log today ... can anyone clear this up and tell me it what it mean or what is causing it?

    Jan 25 13:35:08 ns1 xinetd[1944]: Deactivating service smtp due to excessive incoming connections. Restarting in 30 seconds.
    Jan 25 13:35:38 ns1 xinetd[1944]: Activating service smtp
    Jan 25 13:35:55 ns1 xinetd[1944]: Service smtp: server exit with 0 running servers
    Jan 25 13:36:28 ns1 last message repeated 2 times
    Jan 25 13:36:33 ns1 xinetd[1944]: Service smtp: server exit with 0 running servers

    I can see smtp is being dectivated but why is it doing this? Spammer flooding my smtp or something is most likly?

    Just wondering

    check cps variable in xinetd.conf

    cps - Limits the number of incoming connexions. The first argument is this number itself. When the threshold is exceeded, the service is deactivated for a given time, expressed in seconds, provided with the second argument.
    cps = 50 10

    I got it too (suddenly!) and i set it to 50 and 10 as mentioned. it works..

    but why would the default not work? Mine was 25 30

    any idea why would it suddenly not work... when all these while there is already so many users... :(
