    Recently I have been getting lots of these email warning messages (about 3 daily) from LFD:

    User:myusername PID:4621 PPID:4609 Run Time:13(secs) Memory:201056(kb) RSS:49632(kb) exe:/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/
    usr/bin/php-cgi cmd:/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/php-cgi
    User:myusername PID:4625 PPID:4623 Run Time:12(secs) Memory:271880(kb) RSS:72816(kb) exe:/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/php-cgi cmd:/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/php-cgi
    etc. etc.


    The last message I received had about 90 of these listed for the same user but a few other users get it too. There are also 'excessive resource usage' email messages coming through daily although the memory limit is set to 256Mb (it's a decent CentOS Cloud Server with 2 cpus and 6GB RAM).

    I'm fairly sure that the code is pretty good and the websites run fairly fast. There is nothing pointing to a specific php file like other users seem to have.

    Any ideas what might cause this or how to diagnose things? I have full SSH access.

    Check process tracking settings in csf.conf:
    grep ^PT_USER /etc/csf/csf.conf

    Alert message should contain more detailed information, you did not post it here.

    Thanks for the reply Dryandra.

    No, there are no more details in the alert message, just a lot of similar lines to the ones I gave, all pointing to /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/php-cgi

    Here are the results of that Grep command:

    PT_USERPROC = "10"
    PT_USERMEM = "0"
    PT_USERRSS = "256"
    PT_USERTIME = "0"
    PT_USERKILL = "0"
    PT_USERKILL_ALERT = "1"
    PT_USER_ACTION = ""
