    Hi,

    Last Friday, last night and again tonight, my server required a reboot. Im running firewall, vscan, tripwire, chkrootkit etc. Plowing through the logs I can find nothing out of the ordinary. only 35 low use sites, 20%disk usage, low traffic.

    Is there anything that you can suggest I look into? I can only think it might be memory/harddrive related but Im not sure how to check that remotely.

    WHM 8.2.0 cPanel 8.2.0-R28 RedHat 7.3. P4-2.4 512M 80G

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Elor,
    Have you watched the process to see if there is something else going on...Try running top for awhile and see if anything stands out. I've had users run scripts that would cause issues. On top of that, the user had them running via cron, so we were seeing it at around the same time each night.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I did check crontab and .daily, nothing there. Top has little going on as well. The event does happen within an hour of each other though.

    You mentioned checking to see what scripts are running. Can you tell me how I can check that? What log can I check & what is the path to that log? Thank you!
