    Hello everybody!!!

    Since some weeks ago my memory has been increasing and now in server status is : 87.7%
    I don't want that goes to 100%!! (I think this will chrash my server!)
    So , I've read all the forums about this problem, but I haven't found anything!!

    In SSH , with TOP I'ven't found anything, all the process are running ok:


    7:34pm up 9 days, 19:46, 1 user, load average: 0.10, 0.08, 0.07
    59 processes: 58 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
    CPU states: 0.0% user, 0.0% system, 0.0% nice, 100.0% idle
    Mem: 1023580K av, 1012168K used, 11412K free, 0K shrd, 39916K buff
    Swap: 2040244K av, 584508K used, 1455736K free 84144K cached

    23541 named 9 0 3528 3208 3116 S 0.0 0.3 0:00 named -u named

    I typed M for memory sortage but nothing

    I updated cpanel, and nothing
    I reboot my server and nothing
    I restart apache several times and nothing
    Yesterday I stop all the mysql process, and nothing the memory was the same 87%


    In Server Information in WHM says this in memory:

    Current Memory Usage

    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 1023580 1012196 11384 0 39740 83020
    -/+ buffers/cache: 889436 134144
    Swap: 2040244 585260 1454984
    Total: 3063824 1597456 1466368



    In CPU/Memory/MySQL Usage in WHM says this:

    this are the Top Processes:
    Top Process %CPU 4.0 /usr/bin/perl /scripts/restartsrv_named --check
    Top Process %CPU 2.0 /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/dnsqueue
    Top Process %CPU 1.0 /bin/sh -c /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dcpumon >/dev/null 2>&1
    Top Process %CPU 2.0 proftpd: connected: localhost (127.0.0.1:55832)

    Top Process %CPU 0.5 proftpd: connected: localhost (127.0.0.1:40074)
    Top Process %CPU 2.0 webmaild - serving 200.77.160.230


    And in memory:
    mysql 0.00 2.85 0.0
    named 0.00 1.24 0.0
    mailman 0.00 0.91 0.0
    root 0.18 0.70 2.0

    This are all the "high" processes, but I don't see anything that is consuming all my memory.


    PLEASE HELP ME!!!

    THANKS IN ADVANCE

    Go on, have a guess
    What do you mean by "nothing"? Sorting by M should indicate where the memory is being used. A full ps axfv in the forum CODE tags might help show what's using up all that memory.

    If you'd like me to take a look for you, I'd be happy to - either PM me or get contact details on my site.

    Same prob

    I'm having the same problem and I know what's causing it.

    I ran a "ps -auxc" command and found there are hundreds of "cpanellogd" processes running filling up memory. Seems they are not getting closed and more and more are being generated. Any ideas or help - my memory is at 87.7 right now!!

    service cpanellogd stop
    service cpanellogd start

    /scripts/fixeverything

    # last resort
    # /scripts/upcp --force

    Try that.

    login to your ssh
    and type :
    $ top
    then I think you can obtain more informations and find the user use the most memeory
