    am having this messages concerning my serve

    icontact_sendim: unable to send an IM for xxxxxxxx while trying to sent to xxxxxxxx; please review the error log for details.

    Original Message:
    The chkservd sub-process with pid 3247 ran for 301 seconds. This sub-process was terminated when it exceeded the time allowed between checks, which is 300 seconds. To determine why, you can check /var/log/chkservd.log and /usr/local/cpanel/logs/tailwatchd_log.

    You likely received this notification as a symptom of a larger problem. If your server is experiencing a high load, we recommend investigating the cause. If you continue to receive this notification, it is likely that your system is unable to handle demand or a misconfiguration is delaying restarts.

    If you are sure that no misconfigurations exist, you should consider gradually increasing the following options in WHM's "Tweak Settings" feature:
    "The number of times ChkServd will allow a previous check to complete before terminating the check" and/or "The number of seconds between ChkServd service checks".

    Hello :)

    I notice the server load at the time of that report is high:

    Please review the following thread for troubleshooting a high system load:

    Troubleshooting High Loads On Linux Systems

    Thank you.
