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

pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] Logout.
pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] Logout.
pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] Logout.
pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [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.
