    Hi,
    on one of my servers last few days I have very big problem (after cPanel upgrade to last stable version) and after I added third HDD (ssd) for mysql (mounted to /var/lib/mysql), every few hours cpanel start some stupid processes like quotacheck (this server is only for me and I don`t need quotas) and

    /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/yum --excludekernel* -y install autoconf autoconf261 automake automake19 bind bind9 bind9-devel bind9-utils bind-devel bind-libs bind-tools bind-utils binutils bison bzip2 caching-nameserver compat-db coreutils cpio cpp crontabs curl curl-devel db1 db1-dev db1-devel db1-tools db4 db4-dev db4-devel e2fsprogs-devel expat expat-dev expat-devel expect file fileutils flex freetype freetype-dev freetype-devel ftp gamin gamin-devel gcc gcc-c++ gcc-c++-dev gcc-c++-devel gcc-c++-runtime gd gd-dev gd-devel gd-progs gd-utils gdbm gdbm-devel gentoolkit gettext gettext-devel glibc-dev glibc-devel glibc-kernheaders glibc-static gmake gnupg gzip imap imap-dev imap-devel initscripts iptables kernel-headers krb5-dev krb5-devel less lexlibpng10 lib64openssl0.9.7-devel lib64openssl0.9.7-static-devel libfreetype6 libfreetype6-dev libgcc libgd1 libgd1-devel libidn libidn-devel libjpeg libjpeg62 libjpeg62-dev libjpeg-dev libjpeg-devel libltdl libltdl3-devel libltdl-devel libopenssl0 libopenssl0.9.7-devel libopenssl0.9.7-static-devel libopenssl0-dev libopenssl0-devel libpng libpng10-devel libpng-dev libpng-devel libssl-dev libstdc++ libstdc++-dev libstdc++-devel libtiff libtiff-dev libtiff-devel libtool libtool-libltdl-devel libtool-ltdl libtool-ltdl-devel libX11-devel libxml libxml2 libxml2-devel libxml-devel libXpm libXpm-dev libXpm-devel libz-devel linux-headers lsof lynx make mirrorselect nano ncftp ncurses ncurses3 ncurses4 ncurses-dev ncurses-devel openssh openssh-client openssh-clients openssh-server openssl openssl095a openssl096 openssl096b openssl-dev openssl-devel openssl-misc pcre pcre-devel pam pam-dev pam-devel passwd patch perl-CPAN perl-dev perl-devel pico pine popt portage pwdb python python-dev python-devel python-docs python-modules python-tools quota quota-devel rcs rdate rsync sed shadow-utils sharutils ssh ssl-dev strace stunnel sysstat tar tcl tclx tcp_wrappers-devel tix tk tkinter traceroute ucd-snmp ucd-snmp-devel ucd-snmp-utils unzip urw-fonts util-linux util-linux-ng vixie-cron wget which xfree XFree86-devel XFree86-libs xorg-x11-dev xorg-x11-devel zip zlib zlib1-devel zlib1g zlib1g-dev zlib-devel

    and

    m5sum

    and few others, after it start load on my server go up up up and sometimes over 100...

    What to do???

    What of this I can disable and how???

    I already edited crontab and set backup to do at 5AM...

    For me look like something is not good with last build (WHM 11.30.6 (build 3)) because on other server I have WHM 11.30.4 (build 6) and all working fine....

    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    Those are all system level processes, so it does not sound like an issue with cPanel itself. What type of file system did you mount the new drive as? Have you tried running any of those processes manually to see if they hang?

    Thank you.

    While it's normal for that process to run (e.g. EasyApache will run it), it's not normal for it to run every few hours. Are you sure a new process for YUM is spawned every few hours, or is it possible that you are noticing the same process and it has not stopped?

    Feel free to submit a ticket if you would like for us to rule out any cPanel related issue:

    Thank you.
