    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.

    -rw------- 1 user user 0 Aug 7 06:23 sess_d40c48ae7981162c487969307ed8babf

    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?

    Thanks!

    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
