    I found /usr/local/cpanel/logs/stats_log grows too fast.

    I think when /scripts/upcp is done, that file is resetted.
    But now I've chosen manual update only, that log file has grown too big.

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.7G Dec 30 22:06 stats_log

    Any solution to this issue?

    Thank you.

    Reset the log file?
    cp /dev/null /usr/local/cpanel/logs/stats_log

    Thank you taivu.

    Just resetting that file is OK?
    I've already done that though.

    I saw that log but couldn't understand why same process repeated so many times.

    The reason for &repeated processes& is simple: the logfile is for statistic programs (Webalizer, Analog). Every time they run (once a day) they add entries to the logfile.

    I clean the logfile every now and then, after taking a look at the latest entries. Since you are resetting the file, not deleting it, it will not cause any hiccups with the statistic programs.

    Thank you very much.

    I was a little surprised when I saw that file because it was so huge.
    You two made things clear.
    Yes it is just a log file.

    I setup a logrotate to rotate that file.
    Thank you very much for your help.

    Here's my logrotate conf for stats_log.
    Hope this help someone else having the same problem.

    File: /etc/logrotate.d/cpstats

    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/stats_log {
    missingok
    postrotate
    /usr/local/cpanel/startup 2& /dev/null || true
    endscript
    }
