What to do if dataskq causing high load?

When your server is having high load and dataskq is on the ‘top’ list, you will need to kill the process to lower the load first:
killall -USR1 dataskq
And then trace the cause of high load from:
tail -n 10 /var/log/directadmin/errortaskq.log

If it was stucked at ‘Maildir’, it could means one of the mail user folder is too huge and take too long to be calculated

If it was stucked at ‘brute_force’ or some related files, you need to remove the file and limit its grow in Admin Level -> Admin Settings
