    I have just installed this plugin that by the way looks awesome, however I have just started to see to see
    some messages that look a bit worrying to me, as I don´t want that it may start affecting the performance
    of my customers websites.

    For instance I have found 3 messages like this in this log file /var/log/lfd.log
    Sep 3 07:54:41 pi lfd[27509]: *User Processing* PID:27503 Kill:0 User:librperu VM:208(MB) EXE:/usr/bin/php CMD:/usr/bin/php /home/librperu/public_html/index.php

    That's not a part of cpanel. It's separated and they have a forum where you can read more and/or ask questions.

    I also recommend reading the readme as it will enlighten you. Specifically section 8 (Process Tracking) to address your question.

    Howdy,

    It's just noticing the process is running, it's not harming it. CSF should send you emails about processes that are running too long. You can edit the excludes to avoid filling your inbox.

    All it takes is a user logged in with /bin/bash to warn you all night long ;)

    Thanks!
