    After updating to WHM 11.50.0 (build 30) I received the following email:

    The service “tailwatchd” appears to be down.

    With this Startup Log:

    [Fri Aug 28 08:34:17 2015] Starting /usr/local/cpanel/libexec/tailwatch/tailwatchd daemon
    Log is at /usr/local/cpanel/logs/tailwatchd_log
    tailwatchd is already running. at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/TailWatch.pm line 532.

    Can anyone please provide with some insight on this, in terms of what this is and how it should be resolved.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hello :)

    Does this continue to happen, or was it an isolated occurrence? TailWatch monitors a log file for certain activities, and then takes action based upon the activity. It's documented here:

    Thank you.

    It just happened the one time and has not occurred again. Thanks for the document.

    It's safe to assume the service is running as expected if you only received the single notification (though you could run the "/scripts/restartsrv_tailwatchd --status" command if you wanted to verify that). As mentioned, the document explains how the service functions.

    Thank you.
