Server Hangs, is it Chkservd?

    Hello cPanel.

    Roughly once every 7-14 days my server hangs, obviously all websites are affected.

    I get a rash of emails like this:

    I'm unable to determine the cause.

    Chkservd kills off processes usually always ClamD and Dovecot, sometime HTTPD.
    But chkservd itself usually hangs as well, (a false positive?)

    Has anyone else experienced this behaviour? If so what's the solution?

    My current chkservd settings are the default ones:

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Kind Regards

    Hello,

    Do you notice any error output in /var/log/exim_mainlog or /var/log/exim_paniclog at the times the clamd or spamd services fail?

    Thank you.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for replying, I really appreciate your help.

    I looked in both those files:
    • exim_mainlog - only went back 3 days, so the log was lost.
    • exim_paniclog - was completely empty, file size of 0 bytes.
    Next time the server falls over I will check those 2 logs and report back here.

    Best Regards
