Hi Everyone,
I just noticed my mail server cpanel on centos is loaded up with Tailwatch daemon. It made my server to process mail. I disabled it in the WHM cpanel services. Is this a good idea and or what made it to start producing
these many processes.
Any ideas!!
Thks

tailwatchd is a service that incorporates four drivers: Antirelayd, ChkServd, Eximstats and cPBandwd. These drivers are enabled and disabled in the WebHost Manager in Main >> Service Configuration >> Service Manager. You can disable all four drivers, and then enable each, only one at a time, and see if the problem happens again. This would tell you which specific driver is causing the issue you are seeing.

What you are describing is quite uncommon, so I recommend that you submit a ticket to allow us to log into your server and investigate exactly what is happening.
