What's your sending speed?
« on: April 06, 2005, 02:23:41 pm »
I have a dedicated cpanel server. My sending speed has rarely been lightning fast, but it seems slower now with the 1.8 update.

I used to send about 2 emails/second. Now I am sending 1.03 emails/second.

Has anyone else noticed a speed decrease (or increase) with the 1.8 update? What speeds are other people achieving?

 I had already added the database index as well as the other cpanel optimizations mentioned here before doing the 1.8 update.

Any other ideas on increasing performance? Thanks.

I haven't noticed any speed diffirence in 1.8 vs 1.77.

My List is around 150K, and I normally get around 50-80K / hour.   This means it takes around 2-3 hours for a mailing to be pawned off to the mailing machine, normally small emails, text only, under 10K.

Done with 2 machines, one hosts the DB, the other is a dedicated Mail Machine running sendmail.

Of course once the mail is pawned off to the mailer, it takes it more time to complete its job.
