Howcome strace is running? Obviously I didn't run it (I wouldn't ask otherwise), but it managed to turn the server unresponsive. I had to restart the server to get it back up. Apache was responding, but any site that uses the DB not. I didn't try too much, but the only non DB site was working and two others not, so...

It had be running for quite a while. First it didn't cause issues, but quite a bit later this happened. Any ideas / suggestions?

BTW I've received email notifications of about any service being down.

Hello @PatrickVeenstra,

There are no features in cPanel & WHM that will automatically run the strace command. Has your hosting provider or system administrator accessed your server recently and used strace to troubleshoot an issue?

Thank you.

Hello @PatrickVeenstra,

Can you open a support ticket so we can take a closer look at your system? You can post the ticket number here and we'll update this thread with the outcome.

Thank you.
