Hi,

I just installed cPanel DNS Only on a new CentOS 7 64bit machine. Since I have installed cPanel DNS Only I have been seeing CPU usage of 3-4. When I looked at top/processes it shows this.

771 root 0 91.27 1.23 queueprocd - process next scheduled task

For some reason queueprocd is using 90-95% CPU.

This is what I see when I look at (/var/cpanel/taskqueue).

servers_queue.json:

["TaskQueue","3",{"defer_obj":{},"def_task_to":60,"nextid":21,"deferral_queue":[],"waiting_queue":[],"processing_queue":[],"paused":0,"def_child_to":3600,"max_task_to":300,"max_running":"3"}]

servers_sched.json:

["TaskScheduler","2",{"nextid":7,"waiting_queue":[]}]

The load is just way too high. Any idea how I can fix this or where to look?


Thanks

Hello,

It's possible this is related to internal case CPANEL-11795, where queueprocd consumes 100% CPU when the system time moves backwards. The resolution is included in cPanel version 64.

Could you verify if your system's date/time is accurate, or if it's set back at all? You can test this by checking the date/time, syncing the date/time, and checking it again:

Code:
date
rdate -s rdate.cpanel.net
date
Thank you.
