How To Disable Eximstats on cPanel

Eximstats does just what it implies, keeps stats on exim(email). Sometimes you don't care about these stats and want to free your database and I/O up for more important things. Luckily you can via the following CLI command:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/tailwatchd -–disable=Cpanel::TailWatch::Eximstats
You may want to truncate the related tables for eximstats in MySQL before doing this (to save time if they are crashed,etc) but is not required nor necessary as the above will clear the tables (but will bawk if they are crashed, etc)
