    I am using Postfix as MTA. If I disable logging will it increase the sending speed?

    I am wondering if someone tried it.

    Any suggestion...?

    Any less disk io requests should leave more resources for other processes..

    Depends on your storage medium. If you're on SSD, I wouldn't worry about it.

    If you're on a rotational drive with logging causing a performance hit, setup a remote syslog on a cheap $5 a month VPS and send everything there.
