Hi

Im getting a lot of excessive resource useage errors that look like this :

Time: Sat Mar 19 12:39:18 2011 +0000
Account: xxxxxx
Resource: Process Time
Exceeded: 1831 > 1800 (seconds)
Executable: /usr/bin/perl
Command Line: cpanellogd - http logs for xxxxxx
PID: 5202
Killed: No

Also a lot relating to stats programs (awstats, webailizer, etc). Does anyone know why?

Any help would be great.

Cheers

Chriz

Hi

Yes but my question is is it something to worry about? It looks like the stats programs and the http logs are causing a high load. Could this be due to their size?

They are going over the default setting of 1800 (seconds) as set in CSF. Note the full line:
Exceeded: 1831 > 1800 (seconds)

Perl went over by 31 secs and got flagged for it. Not high load, excessive resource. It used 31 secs more than the setting says it could. You could change that setting, or add this for example to the csf.pignore file:

exe:/usr/bin/perl

And this for webalizer stats if needed:

exe:/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/english/webalizer


Yes but my question is is it something to worry about?
Only the Server Administrator would know that, but for example, if this was a freshly installed server thats locked down properly, no it shouldn't be something to worry about. You just need to adjust settings for your own setup.

Be very careful in what you add to the csf.pignore file, you want to be alerted to many things. Have a look at that file from the CSF UI in WHM for more examples etc.
