Failed To Get Read Lock For /var/spool/exim/db/retry.lockfile

I tried to simulate this problem by patching the code to pretend it had failed to get a lock when trying to update the retry database while tidying up after a I guess the next question is what DBM library is in use? I guess you mean libdb4.2 (package rev 4.2.52-23.1 is installed)? > What kind of file system is used for > /var/spool/exim4?

OK, so it really is an Exim process that has the file open. Information stored: Bug#360696; Package exim4-daemon-heavy. You can play around with the limit a bit by running: echo 131072 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max Use a value that is big enough to keep your conntrack table from filling up. Once you've tweaked things a bit so your conntrack table isn't filling up, you can then work on filtering out some of the bad traffic with firewall rules and the methods

If so, then indeed it may have something to do with this.
