So I keep getting alerts from CFS from the same 4 sites that the memory size is over limit. What Can I do to track this down?

Time: Sun Mar 8 20:55:28 2020 -0700
Account: account
Resource: Virtual Memory Size
Exceeded: 584 > 512 (MB)
Executable: /opt/cpanel/ea-php72/root/usr/sbin/php-fpm
Command Line: php-fpm: pool domain
PID: 16637 (Parent PID:1476)
Killed: No

I have for now disabled CFS from monitoring it but wondering if there's an underlying cause

This seems to happen on literally every Wordpress instance, regardless of if it's a new install or customized. So doesn't seem to me that there's a malicious script or anything utilizing all the resources.

As per the csf alert, there is setting for Process Tracking in csf.conf section which is exceeded and the firewall is just letting you know.
You can increase PT_USERMEM setting in the CSF config file and restart the csf. I do not think that there is a malicious script running on your server.
