    I'm getting excessive resource warnings for sftp for a site that no one is currently using sftp, or at least not supposed to be. What's a good way to identify the source of the problem. I've verified there are not ssh logins for the account that this warning message indicates. Coincidentally this is the exact same issue as this thread from 10 years ago and sadly there was no resolution posted: lfd: Excessive resource usage message


    Resource: Process Time

    Exceeded: 5457 > 1800 (seconds)

    Executable: /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server

    Command Line: /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server

    PID: 22091 (Parent PID:22090)

    Killed: No

    Well it appears that this is pretty much normal if anyone has an sftp session open.
