    On WHM's process manager I constantly see a possible cpu intensive task which seems to be related to mysql.

    The task is kind of

    /usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --plugin-dir=/usr/lib64/mysql/plugin --user=mysql --log-error=/var/lib/mysql/server.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx --open-files-limit=50000 --pid-file=/var/lib/mysql/server.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    It takes like 35% of the CPU load and probably increases the average CPU load.

    It's not clear to me whether the latter process task is normal.

    - Is there something I can do to stop that process from running and consume resources ?
    - How can I get access to the log files ?
    - What could be the root cause of such a task to come into being ?

    I'm a novice to WHM & cPanel. Your help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    It's normal to see this process when MySQL is running. If your sever load or disk I/O is high, you may want to use the "mysqladmin processlist" command to get a better idea of which MySQL databases are using the most resources. You may also find the following thread helpful:

    Thank you.
