Over the last 3 days the server crashed about 8 times. The load average ends up well over 160. crond processes are at an all time hi when the server crashes: 150+ When I view the cron logs the only thing really running is: */5 * * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dcpumon >/dev/null 2>&1 I disabled this cron and for the first time in 3 days the server has stayed online for more than 4 hours and the load is back down to 1 or so. When I execute the command: */5 * * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dcpumon >/dev/null 2>&1 it hangs for a minute but then it finishes up without errors. it appears to execute correctly and the output is sent to: /var/log/dcpumon/toplog.x Anyone have some info on what is causing this? For now I've just left the cron disabled and all is well.
