    I noticed the past 2 Thursdays at about 12:00am cron is being caused to run multiple times in the same period, which is spawning 6~ instances of the same programs/commands instead of 1.

    Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but these are running while that is happening:

    29580 ? D 0:00 /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/bin/ pt --quiet
    29592 ? D 0:00 /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/bin/ pl --quiet
    29603 ? D 0:00 /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/bin/ pt_br --quiet
    29699 ? D 0:00 /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/bin/ ro --quiet

    And cpanel was running a huge update at that time. though I don't have that output.

    chkservd monitors crond on this server.
    Is chkservd unable to verify that crond is running due to resource hogging of the cpanel update, and is respawning crond in error?

    Any help would be good or perhaps bugfix thanks.

    Are you able to reproduce this issue or does it only happen during automatic updates? Also, please post the output from the following command:

    grep '' /etc/redhat-release /usr/local/cpanel/version /var/cpanel/envtype ; grep CPANEL= /etc/cpupdate.conf ; httpd -v ; php -v ; mysql -V
    Thank you.
