Could not complete the Greylisting test due to a database timeout error. RSS


Sorry for may bad english
We have Exchange 2010 SP1 Std Server + ORF EE v4.4
It runs on 2xE5420 Xeon, 8Gb RAM, 2x400Gb(RAID1) 10000RPM SAS drives
In task manager i see a CPU Utilization 12% by orfeesvc.exe*32

In ORF Log Viewer Tool i find huge amount of records:
Could not complete the Greylisting test due to a database timeout error.
Could not clean up expired items from the local Greylisting database, because of a timeout error.

We use Private Local Database. It have size 162,18Mb and 45540 records.

I use a Perfomance Monitor and Resource Monutor to view disks activity(Write\Read)

My answer:
