    Hello,

    is it normal to see these messages?

    tail /var/log/chkservd.log
    Code:
    Chkservd is currently suspended (/var/run/chkservd.suspend exists), waiting 100 seconds
    -"-
    -"-
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tailwatchd restart
    Code:
    Argument 0 did not match (?^:^--(.)) at /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/514/lib64/perl5/cpanel_lib/Getopt/Param/Tiny.pm line 31.
    I read that it is normal for chkservd to be suspended during cpanel udpate (upcp)

    Hello :)

    1. Yes, it's normal to see a suspended message for Chkservd during updates.

    2. You are leaving out the "--" entry for the restart command. Please use the following command to restart the "tailwatchd" service:

    Code:
    /scripts/restartsrv_tailwatchd
    Or:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tailwatchd --restart
    Tailwatch is documented at:

    TailWatch - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    THere seems to be problem. The last line that is not about Chkservd suspension is date:

    [2016-04-05 14:30:15 +0000]

    So it is 8 days since tailwatchd not doing its job? Please which commands to do to discover cause of this? PS: i already tried Yours mentioned restart script (/scripts/restartsrv_tailwatchd) but still only "Chkservd is currently suspended" messages in log.

    # tail -n 800 /usr/local/cpanel/logs/tailwatchd_log|grep -v INFO|grep -v Exim

    Could you elaborate on this? For instance, what are you expecting to see in "/usr/local/cpanel/logs/tailwatchd_log" that's not there?

    Thank you.

    I expected file /var/log/chkservd.log will stop having only lines like:

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
