Signaled to death by 7 - cyrus


I have server that reached the maximum amount of disk space. After making some room for it work Cyrus started to drop this messages

Oct 17 17:34:46 mail cyrus/master[11455]: process 13747 exited, signaled to death by 7
Oct 17 17:34:46 mail cyrus/master[11455]: service imap pid 13747 in BUSY state: terminated abnorma                                 lly

From what I researched this seems related to some file corruption. Although, the service starts it keeps dying.

Any help on this highly appreciated.

Found out what got corrupted and how to fix it

First backup the entire /var/lib/cyrus
Grab a the list of permissions set ls -la /var/lib/cyrus will do it
Stop - Remove - Start the following corrupted files

service cyrus-imapd stop
rm -f /var/lib/imap/tls_sessions.db*
rm -f /var/lib/imap/deliver.db*
rm -f /var/lib/imap/db/*
service cyrus-imapd start

That got me back on track again
