This is a DFly 1.4.0 system (DragonFly 1.4.0-RELEASE (myhost) #3: Thu
Jan 19 08:33:37 EST 2006) that is being used primarily as a spam
filtering machine and, as such, sees some pretty high volume. About a
week ago I started getting the following type of messages appearing in
my logs and am wondering about a) the nature of the severity these
represent b) the underlying cause and c) how to diagnose further.

As a side note, this machine was upgraded from a 1.0 system and the ports replaced/upgraded using pkgsrc.

[diagnostic] cache_lock: blocked on 0xdabe8f88 "70_sare_obfu.cf"
[diagnostic] cache_lock: blocked on 0xdb25bae8 "spamassassin"

I'm not sure but it looks like diagnostic messages regarding locking of cache-structures (or something like that). As such they are probably harmless (unless you are having other problems). If my guess is correct these would simply be messages telling you (or Matt) what the system is doing in case something actually went wrong.
