    There's obviously something going on between the database server and whatever is talking to it.

    What sort of data is in the database?

    It's the internal database of blacklisted names/URLs etc. I think I've nailed it though, fingers crossed - I'd added a user to the limited bandwidth list, rather than suspending their internet access. Censornet seems to generate a broken squid template for this, which somehow causes all sorts of horrendous errors and processes spewing all over the place.

    *fingers crossed i'm not speaking too soon*

    I'd still love to know why it never touches the swap file, but that doesn't seem to be related to the issue at hand. I'm only familiar with the windows concept of swap files so maybe I'm misunderstanding about when/where it should be being used.

    I'm not sure wether the db stores log info as well as configs - i *think* it does (its a while since I disassembled a CN). It may be that you've simply got too full a log db.

    I refer you to the Linux Swap Space mini-HOWTO.

    Think I've cracked it now. It wasn't finding the ACL file for users who should be on 2kb/sec, so it seems it was applying it to everyone - hence the painful slowness. I guess the additional processes are a hangover of waiting for all the requests to complete to log them...

    Thank you for that and your patience with the rest of my questions.

    That would make sense.

    I have seen that before on Censornet installs... I should get round to trying the new version that comes as a debian package this wee.
