Guys, I keep getting this in my WHM lfd.log:

Mar 25 12:02:12 server lfd[25314]: *User Processing* PID:25309 Kill:0 User: usergoeshere VM:592(MB) EXE:/opt/cpanel/ea-php74/root/usr/sbin/php-fpm CMD:php-fpm: pool userdomaingoeshere_com

If I uderstand this right, the PHP is using more resources than assigned.
How do I handle / take care of this this?

The script involved is Microweber CMS

Hello! These types of warnings in the lfd.log indicate that a process is using above a certain threshold of memory which is configured in /etc/csf/csf.conf. This may or may not be problematic depending on whether your server can handle the workload. For reference:

What Load Average is Considered High?

If your server's load is low/acceptable, you can configure LFD to ignore certain processes or users in the /etc/csf/csf.pignore file to prevent the log from filling up. The following thread on ConfigServer's forum has instructions for managing this file:

If the PHP-FPM processes are causing a high load, you can work with your system administrator to tune PHP-FPM to decrease the load:

PHP-FPM Performance Tuning Basics

With that said, I did want to note that cPanel doesn't create or distribute the CSF/LFD firewall tool. If you had any specific questions about configuring CSF/LFD it would be best to reach out to their Technical Support
