    In my /tmp dir has thousand and thousand of cPanel session files.
    In each second, appears 50 or more!
    All them, from the same user, and all them with zero bytes.

    This strange issue start today (the user is old with me), and I already restart Apache and cPanel with no results.

    Now, I'm running a command in Cron to delete this files in every minute.

    Someone have an idea about whats happen here?

    probably you client has a bad script somewhere, that just opens php sessions...
    if it's a very active site, probably he made some changes lately to the scripts, and now with each visit, you get hundereds of session files
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
