The process zmlogger of Zimbra server is using 100% CPU.


  • Clean the files zimbra.log and zimbra-stats.log in /var/log/ if they are large in size.
  • If the previous step doesn't help, run the below steps to improve the performance :
zmcontrol stop
zmlocalconfig -e zmmtaconfig_interval=6000 
zmprov mcf zimbraLogRawLifetime 7d 
zmprov mcf zimbraLogSummaryLifetime 30d 

Change the crontab entry for logger as below :

crontab -e
*/60 * * * * /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstatuslog 
zmcontrol start
