    One of our cpanel servers shows:


    PID USER PRI NI SIZE RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM TIME COMMAND
    3458 *** 25 0 5628 2900 4176 R 86.3 0.0 166:31 traceaddy.cgi

    Checking /proc/3458 shows:
    cwd -> /usr/local/cpanel/base/

    And sure enough traceyaddy.cgi appears to be a cpanel script - but why would it be running for 166:31 and be taking 86% of the cpu?

    Go on, have a guess
    Definitely looks like a loop. You could gather some info with a strace and let cPanel know and/or just kill it off.
