We are thinking of converting to Dovecot to lighten our I/O load. I have done
some performace tests comparing UW-IMAP to Dovecot when using mbox format if
anyone is interested. They primarily examine the I/O improvements that can be
gained from using Dovecot over UW when staying with mbox format:
I had too much cached for this set of tests, and I am going to re-run some
with the recommended cache settings...so stay tuned.
Anyway, we are stuck with the mbox format for the forseeable future, and I
noticed how hard hitting Dovecot is on initial access to a large mailbox, so we
need a way to pre-create some of those indexes. I saw in the docs that such an
indexer has been planned, but does anyone have a hack for doing it now?
