    Hi,
    I ran a manula update a few weeks ago and noticed that the update had added dcpumon to my crontab.

    That is great because I understand that this moniters the server.

    However, it is killing a script that I am running.

    I have a membership based website and email the members almost nightly.

    The email takes about 45min-hour to send all the emails but I believe dcpumon
    keeps killing it.

    Can I chnage the load settings some how on dcpumon
    or should I just adjust the cron?

    */5 * * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dcpumon >/dev/null 2>&1

    This is set to run every 5 minutes correct?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!!! :D

    dcpumon kills processes? I dont think it does.
    As far as I know dcpumon logs top processes only.

    Yep, every 5 mins.

    Any ideas?

    I am still not sure what is killing my processes.
    It was fine before the update.

    dcpumon runs for too long after upcp

    dcpumon keeps running (and taking load high with it) after every manual ./upcp run and shoots a message regarding scripts which are having sendmail active in them. How long should it run after upcp?

    Here is what top shows after upcp run (12 minutes already thru)

    603 root 39 19 5536 4168 2064 R 99.4 0.2 12:48.01 dcpumon

    99.4 cpu utilization
