Ideally I would still like to recieve warnings if certain machines are not
collecting properly.  For now to
avoid the defunct processes I am starting orca from cron once every 5
minutes with the -o flag.  I will
keep your suggestion in consideration if no other work-around presents
itself.  Thanks!

try commenting out the 'warn_email' definition in your config file.

Subject:  [orca-developers] /usr/local/orca/bin/orca: warning: cannot fork

When  reviewing my messages log on the machine that hosts the orca process,
I find the  following
error  message:

/usr/local/orca/bin/orca: warning: cannot fork for sendmail: No such file
or directory

which  correponds exactly to the number of defunct processes that I spawn
each  day.  Did I misconfigure
orca?  Orca is running on a Redhat v7.1 box, perl v 5.6.0-12, with  the
latest version of orca.  In addition,
the  machine does not have sendmail, but rather uses postfix (which seems
to be the  problem).  Any
