    Hello,
    our server has 8 cores
    and the cpu usage is 0.2 to 4.0 when we lunch it for the first time - restart-
    but after 24 to 48 hours

    the process goes up to 10 to 40 sometimes
    on WHM we found the the current process that takes most cpu are [sync_supers]

    there are like 7 of them and all of them are by nobody and using over 70% cpu each.

    Is a [sync_supers] process a cpanel process or is a malware, the strace of a process is a time out:

    elect(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
    select(8, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
