I am currently having issues with a server hanging up and constantly hanging.

My server load seems to gradually buildup over a week and i can gaurentee every sunday it needs to be rebooted.
I am currently monitoring my server using cacti and mrtg and the only thing that climbs in the same way my load does id my pop3 concurrent connections.

I was wondering if there is a known bug somewhere that i can fix or patch

I originally had my connections set to 100 which i have now set to 30, it isnt that the process is using masses of resource it must be that there must be a load of processes
