    lfd on server: Excessive resource usage: _lldpd (3094 (Parent PID:3092))
    
    Time:         Fri Jan 17 09:00:14 2014 -0600
    Account:      _lldpd
    Resource:     Process Time
    Exceeded:     50661 > 2400 (seconds)
    Executable:   /usr/sbin/lldpd
    Command Line: /usr/sbin/lldpd
    PID:          3094 (Parent PID:3092)
    Killed:       No
    What would cause this?
    And then what's the fix?

    Hello :)

    This is not a process that is related to cPanel. It's a package that is installed on your OS. You can find more information on this process at:

    Link Layer Discovery Protocol

    Thank you.

    That doesn't help too much. I've never heard of this, and have no idea what would cause it. Even after reading the link, I still have no idea what it is.

    It doesn't happen often, but it seriously reads like "blah blah blah" to me.

    The following external URL may also be of help to you:

    RPM CentOS 5 lldpd 0.7.6 x86_64 rpm

    It provides a little more detail on it's actual interaction with your OS. I suggest consulting with your data center or hosting provider to determine if the package is necessary on your particular system.

    Thank you.

    I have no idea why this was installed on my dedicated server. It came that way from the host. I've removed it. The server appears to still be fine. I compared it to my others, and none had this service.

    Not sure why nobody anywhere (WHT, host, cPanel, etc) ever mentioned this possibility.

    It doesn't happen often, but I felt light a deer in headlights.
