    Hi,

    I see this in the Process Manager a lot and the <defunct> bit was what made me curious. Was just wondering if this is anything bad or anything that needs to be fixed/changed. It's consuming the most CPU at the moment as well.

    Please see the screenshot and the highlighted row.

    Thanks.

    0.3% CPU is barely any CPU usage. The process is defunct and will die off eventually. cpsrvd-ssl is simply a cPanel login over SSL. If you kill it, it wouldn't matter too much, since it's already defunct.

    That's what worries me, we don't have SSL enabled on the server. 0.3 is a lot to my server since it makes site go slower when it reaches even 0.1%. Do cPanel do investigations into things like this? I mean, when the server load gets just slightly high, everything goes slower. 1GB Guaranteed RAM, 2GB Burstable RAM, 8 processors.

    Edit: SSL redirect was enabled, I remember now, I was fixing warnings in the CSF server security log and SSL was one of them. We don't have SSL at the moment, so I've disabled it. I guess that would explain the cpanel attempting to serve an SSL connection and becoming defunct.

    If even 0.1% CPU usage causes your machine to become slow, there's something wrong with your machine's hardware.

    I'm running a VPS, are there any checks I can do to look into that?

    The best check is speaking with your hosting provider if you don't control the server yourself but only have a VPS node on it. They should be the ones helping you to track down what is going on. If this is a Virtuozzo or OpenVZ-based machine, then other users on the machine can impact your own node for latency and services. If this is Xen-based, then you shouldn't be having any issues from other users, although the hardware itself could be an issue. Again, your host is who can assist further.
