    again probably the wrong forum...

    i have disabled spam assasin etc, i have no spam checkers runnin yet most of my cps/mem time is taken up (about 80%) which is killing other php apps.

    cPanel 11.24.4-R32603 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9
    CENTOS 5.2 i686 on xen

    my normal load is quite low, but when i run top

    i get
    Pid Owner Priority Cpu % Mem % ▴ Command
    18172 root 0 0.0 25.3 /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/whostmgr2 ./top

    18053 root 0 0.0 5.3 whostmgrd - serving
    18012 root 0 0.0 4.4 whostmgrd - serving
    18006 root 0 0.0 3.2 tailwatchd
    8130 root 0 0.0 1.6 /usr/bin/spamd -d --allowed-ips= --pidfile=/var/run/ --max-children=3 --max-spare=1

    and occasionally spamd child comes up also.
    is it reasonable to just kill the two processes?
