    Hi

    I'm using WHM 11.38.2 (build 7).

    I've noticed these types of info messages approx every 20 minutes in my messages log from var/log

    I've seen on some places that this refers to chkservd service monitoring. I understand that chkservd checks the processes. By why in does it only show for ftpd in my messages? Why this process only?:confused:

    Apologies if this is obvious to most but I'm still learning.

    Thanks

    Yes we know that, the question is why does this check gets logged in messages, if there are other things its checking why doesn't that get logged in the messages too?

    chkservd log file is in /var/log/chkservd.log
    You see those connection entries in /var/log/messages because pure-ftpd uses /var/log/messages for logging.
    If you check for ex. /var/log/exim_mainlog and /var/log/maillog you see similar connections from chkservd.
