    We too have noticed this with 1 server, has been like this for 3 days now, forcing the load to rise, and this is after a users is connected for a few minutes.

    Same here. On this server the CPU usage is always 99.9% for the offending process. It can be killed, but still, who wants to sit killing processes all day?

    Switched to Pure last night, no better, loads are still to high, if I do kill, then drops 0.30 average...

    Is this a bug?

    We have had no complaints from any clients and this is a fully working server.

    Also see quote below from tech at the data center.

    Pure does sound alot better, however doesnt WHM say that Pure cant not log bandwidth ? That could be a problem for users with higher amounts of space. What if they wanted to distribute files via ftp?

    I would suggest keeping a eye on the accounts, we do, and rather have that then the server load going out of control ;)

    We are seeing the same problems on a couple of our servers. I found that running /scripts/proftpd128 seems to fix the problem (havent had any issues since)

    In all of these servers with problems, do you see SmartFTP always as the FTP client, or are there a variety of FTP clients involved?
