    Every few days this happens
    ProFTPD running several times using 99% CPU and the server load very high and the only way to close it is with kill -9 PID.
    I have two cpanel servers and this only happens on one of them. Both servers have same version of cpanel and proftpd.

    'ps aux' shows me the username and the command they were running when its frozen but its different users and different commands all the time so its not something one of our customers are doing.

    Seems to be a wierd bug affecting users when they try to list more then 50 files. Sometimes it list sometimes it hangs causing high server load. Best thing to do is update proftpd to 1.2.9 it fixxed it for me.

    rpm -qa|grep proftpd

    what proftpd version are you running? cPanel has been using 1.2.9 for a while now.

    I have proftpd-1.2.8tlsp-6_linuxprivs

    Upgraded to the latest Release, but still no changes:

    Updated server software in cpanel:

    proftpd is up to date (Wed Sep 24 14:43:44 2003)

    Other boxes have this version:

    proftpd-1.2.9tls-5_linuxprivs

    Looks like switching to pureftpd and the proftpd again installs the latest proftpd.
