Hello,

Need help in resolving this issue.

Just setup a new VPS with 5 cpus and 5GB of RAM running PHP 7.1 and php-fpm and MySQL 5.6.39. We have been receiving an hourly email notification from the server about excessive resource usage of memcached. Following is the email we receive:

Subject: lfd on server.domain.com: Excessive resource usage: memcached (1181 (Parent PID:1181))

Body:

Time: Mon May 14 20:01:41 2018 +1000
Account: memcached
Resource: Process Time
Exceeded: 295608 > 1800 (seconds)
Executable: /usr/bin/memcached
Command Line: /usr/bin/memcached -u memcached -p 11211 -m 64 -c 1024 -l 127.0.0.1 -U 0
PID: 1181 (Parent PID:1181)
Killed: No

Could someone please advise if memcached server and client is configured correctly?

Thanks for help.

Hello @dalem.

I have entered the proposed code "exe:/usr/sbin/memcached" into the csf.pignore file but I am still receiving the email notifications form lfd.

Any ideas what I should do next?

Thanks.

In your first post, the executable was shown as being /usr/bin/memcached

Are you sure you added exe:/usr/bin/memcached into the pignore file, or did you add exe:/usr/sbin/memcached ?

You could try editing this in pignore, save and restart LFD, and see what happens

Hello @rpvw.

You are correct. I initially add exe:/usr/sbin/memcached which was still causing lfd to trigger. I have now changed to exe:/usr/bin/memcached. Email notices from lfd is now stooped.

Many thanks for your help.
