Does anyone know what this message is ?

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log:

This only started happening after updating to 56.0.14.
I initially assumed it may have something to do with me logging in to WHM, but these are happening at random times.
This particular one at 11pm.

Hello,

This is normal behavior that's associated with the dormant service functionality for cpsrvd in version 56. Per our documentation:

This setting configures the system to unload idle services from memory after up to ten minutes of inactivity, and then loads listening devices that correspond to it. This setting reduces memory usage, but delays responses from dormant services. When you enable this setting for a service, that service will immediately enter dormant mode whenever you reboot your server or restart the service.

Thus, this is why you see log output like this in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log whenever the service exits out of dormant mode:

Code:
==> cpsrvd 11.56.0.8 started
==> cpsrvd: loading security policy....Done
==> cpsrvd: Setting up native SSL support ... Done
==> cpsrvd: transferred port bindings
==> cpsrvd: bound to ports
You can read more about this in the version 56 release notes:

Thank you.
