    Hi folks,

    I just had a customer send in a ticket about his sites being down. Turns out named had died in a fire, and chkservd hadn't caught it. A look at the chkservd log yielded this:

    Chkservd is currently suspeneded -- by /var/run/chkservd.suspend, waiting 100 seconds

    There were 800 seconds' worth of those. The misspelling is pasted directly from the log.

    I didn't see anything updating, so I attempted to restart tailwatchd.

    root@host [/var/log]# /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tailwatchd restart
    Cpanel::TailWatch::Eximstats appears to have unprocessed SQL in /var/cpanel/sql at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/TailWatch.pm line 67.
    2009-01-20 04:41:27 UTC [main] Current process '22433' stopped
    [Mon Jan 19 23:41:25 2009] Starting /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tailwatchd daemon
    Log is at /usr/local/cpanel/logs/tailwatchd_log

    I tailed the chkservd log again:

    Loading services .....mysql....imap....spamd....named....clamd....pop....exim....cpsrvd....ftpd....httpd..Done
    Chkservd is currently suspeneded -- by /var/run/chkservd.suspend, waiting 100 seconds
    Chkservd is currently suspeneded -- by /var/run/chkservd.suspend, waiting 100 seconds

    So it started up and then suspended itself once more.

    I then did a upcp --force, which seems to have (at least for now,) fixed the issue. However, I'm wondering why the lockfile was there. What processes put the suspend file in place?

    I checked my logs and saw the suspended in there a few times as well so I look forward to an answer. I assume it relates to load. MIght be a good reason to run one of the namersevers clustered on another server.

    chkservd suspends during upcp so it does not trigger any false positives during service updates.

    Thanks for the answer, Nick. upcp wasn't running, though, so perhaps it just left the suspension file behind.
