lfd seems to always be taking about alot of load unless stopped! Anyone know why?

Top Process %CPU 32.0 lfd - sleeping
Top Process %CPU 21.0 lfd - (child) process tracking...

Alot of times, its higher then that!

Go on, have a guess
As I've mentioned in the main csf thread, those WHM stats are meaningless. You need to watch the server in top to see what lfd is up to when you believe performance is being affected. IF it is, then you'll need to tweak csf.conf appropriately (i.e. to scan less and/or less frequently).
