Code:
  PID USER     PRI  NI  SIZE  RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM   TIME CPU COMMAND

15120 cpanel    25   0 29968  24M  1528 R    57.2  2.4   3:24   0 php
Seem to have this a lot today, I have to keep on manually killing them to keep the server load down. Possibly a phpMyadmin add?

running 9.9.8 c17.

Also we have about 60 zombie processes and 1 stopped process. Should I be worried about this?

This part of the problem perhaps?

which problem?

php /cpanel i think is caused by phpmyadmin

zombie processeses is caused by cpanels coding.

Upgraded to new cpanel and that seems to have sorted things. (might break some others but hey!)
