Hello!

top: 1604 total, 1 running, 1603 sleeping

I have user with 1 crontab note.
For 1 crontab note has been created 4 processes.

ps aux
Code:
root     31816  0.0  0.0 142272  1680 ?        S    04:38   0:00 CROND

user000  32578  0.0  0.0   6184   400 ?        S    02:54   0:00 jailshell (user000) [init] hell -c /usr/bin/php /home/user000/file.php
user000  32580  0.0  0.0 418680 14928 ?        S    02:54   0:00 /usr/bin/php /home/user000/file.php

I entered "pkill -u UID".
And received:

Tasks: 238 total, 2 running, 236 sleeping,


How I can limit the time their existence? How fix it?

Hello :)

To clarify, are you concerned with the amount of time it's taking for those cron jobs to finish? If so, try executing the cron jobs manually to see if they complete successfully. You may need to investigate those PHP scripts to see why they are hanging.

Thank you.

Not! :)

PHP script has been successfully completed. But processes jailshell & CROND are sleeping in the system...
It is inconvenient when I have 1600 the sleeping processes.
May be I can someway to setup the limits for it?

Thank you.

Also I am spending 2GB RAM Memory for this processes.

If I use the /usr/bin/php /blabla/the_script.php in the root console, script completed successfuly. And my process is not sleeping.

If user use the cronjob "/usr/bin/php /blabla/the_script.php" then script completed successfuly, but jailshell and crond are sleeping...
