The following processes started to appear after the last WHM updates and seem to be eating up system resources. What do they mean, how did they happen and how do we get rid of them?

/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/522/bin/perl -T -w /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/522/bin/sa-compile

And:

/usr/libexec/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.4.7/cc1 -quiet -I/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/522/include -I/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/include -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/522/lib64/perl5/5.22.1/x86_64-linux-64int/CORE -DPERL_DISABLE_PMC -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS64 -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE2 -DVERSION"1.0" -DXS_VERSION"1.0" scanner6.c -quiet -dumpbase scanner6.c -mtunegeneric -auxbase scanner6 -Os -fwrapv -fno-strict-aliasing -fstack-protector -fPIC -o -

Hello,

The "sa-compile" process compiles your SpamAssassin rules when SpamAssassin is updated. You are likely to see this process running when cPanel updates. Could you verify how long that process is hanging and review Troubleshooting high server loads on Linux servers to see if your system is maxing out it's resources?

Also, please post the output from the following command in order to provide us with information about your system:

Code:
grep '' /etc/redhat-release /usr/local/cpanel/version /var/cpanel/envtype; uname -r
Thank you.

Thank you for the fast response. Regarding the output of the above command:

/etc/redhat-release:CentOS release 6.8 (Final)
/usr/local/cpanel/version:11.58.0.25
/var/cpanel/envtype:standard
2.6.32-504.el6.x86_64

This is a record for today taken from the WHM daily process log. Like it's at 100%. If SpamAssassin is the problem, where should I turn it off?
