I took over the maintenance of our internal web site.
There we use mhonarc to archive mailing lists, and generate rss feeds.
We use it from a python wrapper, named mailapp, which I believe was written

Occasionally (Feb 21, June 18), one process starts taking up all the host
resources (80% of the memory, significant CPU share).
The number of mailapp processes raises--my understanding is that the topmost
is not releasing a lock, and new ones are just cropping.

I can then find two files of huge sizes (20M):
- rawmsgs.txt
- rss20.xml

Renaming them away, and killing the processes solves the problem

Looking at the contents of the xml file, I found beyond the first  100k a
repeated pattern of:

  a rel="&gt;&lt;

eng-artix-merge> head -c 101100 rss20.xml.away | tail -c 100; echo
 -0,0 +1,99 @@&lt;br /&gt;+&lt;a rel="&gt;&lt;a rel="&gt;&lt;a rel="&gt;&lt;a
rel="&gt;&lt;a rel="&g

I am not sure what is the cause and what the effects.
I couldn't find an existing report which would clearly describe the same
Any insights are welcome.
