Hello,

my new server (installed last week) is opening a LOT of cpanel_php_fpm instances every 5 minutes... when I run "ps", it returns below. How to fix this? Running version 60.0.25.

Code:
cpanelp+  2610   930  0 15:50 ?        00:00:00 php-fpm: pool cpanelphpmyadmin
cpanelp+  2611   930  0 15:50 ?        00:00:00 php-fpm: pool cpanelphpmyadmin

Hello,

Internal case CPANEL-9788 is open to address an issue where several cpanel_php_fpm processes are spawned during Chkservd service checks on systems with "PHP-FPM service for cPanel Daemons" enabled. I'll update this thread again once the resolution is published. In the meantime, you can disable "PHP-FPM service for cPanel Daemons" via "WHM >> Service Manager" as a workaround.

Thank you.

@cPanelMichael:

Please do keep us informed. I've had occasions where the server has been overloaded and there have been 187 cpanel_php_fpm processes, user cpanelphpmyadmin, consuming 1020 MB of memory. Currently new relic shows the server having 97 processes, using 0.0% CPU, and 114 MB of memory.

Thanks.
