    Hello. I have a very wired problem with /tmp & tmpwatch here.

    All files(owned by different users)' access time in /tmp are updated by an unknown process every 5 minutes.

    Because of this, tmpwatch will not auto clean-up tmp files and /tmp gets full quickly.

    I've created a script which runs lsof every 0.1 seconds to monitor /tmp but still could not find out why.

    I've checked all cron tasks from all users and created from /etc/cron.xxx/.

    The only task runs every 5 minutes is /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dcpumon.

    It's cPanel's system monitor process.

    Is that possible that it caused the problems?

    Thanks!
