Hey there! As you mentioned, this notification is from CSF and is just letting you know that is sees that process has been running for a long time. While not controlled by cPanel, we do have details on the CSF warnings here:


and you can adjust that configuration to stop those from being sent. It's important to note that this does not indicate any issues with the machine.

That time in seconds is about 31 days, so it's possible this has just been running since the last time the server was rebooted. It's fine that it's been running for so long, but the CSF tool just doesn't know about that process. You can whitelist memcached using the details in the link I sent, but if you think that CSF isn't operating normally it would be best to reach out to their team at ConfigServer Technical Support to let them know.
