Mail::DKIM v0.29 slow? Upgrade to v0.30.1

February 18th, 2008

My nightly SA mass-checks have been hanging up this week on a 1MB email (not sure how a 1MB message got in my mass-check corpus, but that’s not important). It turns out that it was Mail::DKIM v0.29 that was taking about 150 seconds to process the message, while the rest of SA was only taking about 10 seconds. Upgrading to Mail::DKIM v0.30.1 resolves the problem… the DKIM check is fast (I didn’t time it, probably under a second).

The speed-up may be due to Mark Martinec’s optimizations in v0.30. It could be that the optimization was just to not do the crypto on the body, though, since the message in question did not have a signature (the sender doesn’t sign mail).
