    I just got a new server and message logs are filled with this every 8 minutes:

    pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
    pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] Logout.
    pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
    pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] Logout.
    pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
    pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] Logout.
    pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
    pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] Logout.

    Every 8 minutes, 24 hours a day, and I haven't even put any accounts on the server yet.

    This seems abnormal to me, is it?

    Thanks for any opinions / replies.

    chksrvd connecting to the FTP process to ensure it is active. If you don't want it, disabling monitoring for pure-ftpd.
