Something strange happened yesterday when a student sent a message
to a teacher. Moodle sent the message 247 times before Apache
restarted itself to stop the action from being taken. It seems similar
to what happened here: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=99503
The was the error our Network Admin received from some notification program he has running on our servers: "System running out of memory. Availability of the system is in risk."
Everything since seems to be running just fine. This installation of Moodle is only about a month old and we're running 1.9.9+
It also looks like the course Full name was reset for the class that
student was in. I'm still trying to find the answer for what happened
as everything appears to be running smoothly.
Any ideas about what I can do to prevent this from happening, or why this happened to begin with?
