Since cPanel started placing sessions in /var/cpanel/php/* , these have not been automatically cleaned up, at all. This should be either added to tmpwatch, or cleaned up manually, because these drastically affect clients who have inode limits.

I've seen servers go from 100% full (2m inodes) to 35% simply by cleaning out sessions older than 5 days.

This really shouldn't need to be done by your customers, or their SA's. You implemented this bug, please fix it.

This isn't just one server, it's been seen multiple times tonight, multiple times over the past few months. It's irresponsible to just let this go for so long.

Hi,

Which version of cPanel & WHM are you seeing this behavior on?

scripts/clean_user_php_sessions should be running every 20 minutes, or so, removing those session files.
