cPanel Wonky Load (Pure-Quotacheck? Cpsrvd Failures?)


Jul 6, 2003
Every few days loads on our apache server skyrocket to 20-30 from its usual sub-1 position. At about this time I get a flurry of emails from cPanel saying that cpsrvd has failed

I'll run 'top' and see "pure-quotacheck" idling at the top sometimes with double digit CPU usage

Is cPanel doing something to cause all this? For example is this an update going sour?

If I look in my error_log I'll also see this error:

[client XXX.XX.XX.XXX] mod_rewrite: maximum number of internal redirects reached. Assuming configuration error. Use 'RewriteOptions MaxRedirects' to increase the limit if neccessary.

is that related? Help...
