    One of the cPanel processes (maybe chkservd?) is hitting my apache hard with GET requests, once every second! This started after the level 2 upgrade of cPanel v11 STABLE.

    take a look at this:

    Code:

    Can someone please help trace which process is doing that?

    I'd recommend submitting a support ticket regarding this issue:http://tickets.cpanel.net/submit

    Note, chkservd usually only checks services once every 8 minutes.

    I've stopped "chkservd" and the log file continues to grow with those "GET / HTTP/1.0" requests.

    Is there another cPanel component which performs such a GET request?

    I found out what the problem is:

    EA3 adds the following configuration lines:

    Code:
    NameVirtualHost *
    
    and...

    Code:
    <VirtualHost *>
        ServerName server.domain.com
        DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache/htdocs
        ServerAdmin webmaster@domain.com
    </VirtualHost>
    
    the problem is the asterisk, which causes the dummy_connection function to open and close a connection every second.

    if the above lines are commented out, then the dummy connection stops.

    PS:
    this is with apache 2.2.

    I'm sorry, i forgot to mention that you also need to comment out the following line:

    Code:
    NameVirtualHost *
    
    edit: i also edited my solution above to include this line as well.
