Hello - I'm trying to track down the source of this misery which seems related to an openvpn_as server and which reports at the same minute every hour. I do have that server but no cron at that minute. Anyone any suggestions on how to trouble-shoot? Only started yesterday. Thanks.

Hey hey! I don't think there's anything related to cPanel on this one. The notification is from CSF, and the process being mentioned isn't something that is part of the bundled cPanel tools. If the process is running fine and you're not seeing issues, it's just CSF being over-sensitive, and you can whitelist it:

Hi @cPRex. Thanks. Yes, I agree this is not related specifically to Cpanel. I've reached out to openvpn AS group and will report back with findings. I know I can ignore it but don't know if that's a good thing given that I've been running this server for a while and this just started.,

SOLVED: I received a message from the folks at openvpn Access Server who said these messages do not indicate a compromise with the server or openvpn AC and the excessive resources is due to the heavy workload of encryption and decryption of data and suggest to put the openvpnas on a separate server.
