    I've been getting this in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log, and it is filled with this error.

    What is it really, and what can I do?

    check_sessions is a function in cpsrvd that performs various session checks (including purging old sessions). The message indicates the daemon is receiving connections faster than it can process. As for what you can do, that is hard to say. If the state persists even now I recommend opening a support ticket (https://tickets.cpanel.net/review/login.cgi) with us.

    Have seen this after updating WHM/cPanel and doing a "service cpanel restart" has fixed it for us.

    I just experienced the same issue. Problem solved by restarting cpanel as stated above. Thanks
