View/Report Bugs




The Email::Blaster software is intended to run for months or years on end without requiring constant babysitting or attention.

OS Shutdown

If the OS shuts down, the Email::Blaster will handle the TERM signal by calling any/all server_shutdown event handlers, and then will exit.

OS Restarts

If the OS restarts, the Email::Blaster will not automatically start up again when the OS comes back online.

It is recommended that a service is added to the server configuration to ensure that the Email::Blaster is automatically started (after MySQL has come online).


The Email::Blaster software should be run under a normal user account - admin permissions are not required or recommended.

Ports Used

By default, no ports are used. If Clustering mode is used, whatever port memcached is listening to on the local and server should be open (port 11211 by default).

RAM and CPU Usage

Inordinate amounts of RAM and CPU should not be used, unless the emails sent are very large.
