I am new to CPanel and I don't quite understand what is going on with my site. I am getting 1,500 emails a week minimum from my root telling me there is excessive resource usage from my virtual memory.

Resource: Virtual Memory Size
Exceeded: 241 > 200 (MB)
Executable: /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/bin/php-cgi
Command Line: /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/bin/php-cgi
PID: 16297 (Parent PID:16100)
Killed: No

is this something i should ignore?
should I increase my VM size?
should this php be pulling that much memory?

I've got to be honest, I have spent 3 weeks or so, researching this further, and reading all the other threads and the only thing that made sense was the threads where some users just stopped the emails from happening.
I am still not currently sure what is using all this excess memory, or if it actually makes any difference for the site or its usability.
This CSF/LFD message is still going over my head and happening at the rate of at least 150 times a day.

As a simple exercise that might possibly help, open up CSF settings, find the area for Process tracking settings. Find the item with the 200 set for the setting, as noted in your first post:


PT_USERMEM

Change that to 300 and save, restart CSF. See if that helps.
I know this is an old post/thread, but I just gave this a shot. Thanks for the tip.
