Hello,

The NSCD daemon caches hosts, passwords, and groups, which improves performance of recurring nameserver requests and password and group lookups. It will also greatly improve your Exim mail server performance. However, it does require at least 1000MB of available memory. You can disable the service via "WHM >> Service Manager" to see if you noticed improved performance on your system, however the image you uploaded doesn't indicate heavy usage.

Thank you.
