    Dear WHM/cPanel users,
    I face a weird issue and i would like to share with you for further investigation.
    I see the process manager for two servers with WHM. The 1st one has 4GB total memory and the 2nd one 8GB. As you can see clamd and spamd deamons use the double memory usage for the server of 4GB RAM in compare with the one that have 8GB available.

    I have checked the configuration files and i can not find any change that could reduce the memory usage for the 1st server.

    Any advice would be more than welcome!

    Any suggestion?
    Can you please share with me at least your relative stats? I really try to reduce the memory usage that /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/clamd command without any success since now.

    As i can see there is the option on where i could uninstall unofficial signatures of Clamav or simply install only low memory signatures (as recommended for low memory VPS).

    grscripts.com/tweaking.html#clamav_un

    Could you suggest such a process?

    Your posts are unclear. Are you saying you're running ASSP on at least one of these servers or no?

    I'm not sure I'd be concerned about a spike in memory usage like you suggest is an issue. You really can't compare the 2 servers like this as one is doing something the other isn't, at the time you grabbed a screenshot.

    Thank you for your time.
    No. Both of servers use the pre-defined configurations. I have made no changes as for clamd and spamd. Ι simply searched for this and one suggestion is 'Tweaking ASSP deluxe'.
    Could you please share with me what one server could do most compare with the other one regarding these two deamons?

    Mail scanning on one server might be scanning something the other server is not at the time of your screenshot, for example.

    Are you having some sort of actual issue here? If no, I wouldn't worry too much about memory, you've got plenty on both servers.

    That's why i created this thread. Such issue is not occurred 'at the time'. I am checking both these servers the last 14 days and the results are almost the same per server.


    Thank you for your suggestions.

    Can you please share with me your screenshots regarding clamd and spamd deamons?
    Process manager is located at: Home >> System Health >> Process Manager in WHM.

    Thank you in advanced!

    Nothing to see, it looks just like yours. What is it you're hoping to see exactly?

    The memory (%) usage for the servers that have the pre-defined configuration.
    No hope at all. I just want to see what happens to other users. This is wrong. Isn't it?

    My apologies, I don't understand the question you're asking.
