    I'll keep it simple:

    1) What does this do?
    2) I’ve removed it from cron as its breaking one of my systems, will this break anything else being removed?
    3) Why was dnsqueue crashing, occasionally, and using a shed load of CPU trying to delete zones and every few seconds constantly reloading named?

    This machine is using regular WHM, but is part of a DNS cluster.

    That cron is part of the DNS clustering system!...

    I gathered that.

    But is it important it runs?

    As its causing problems on two of the servers. Unable to complete and causing high load.

    Loads of:

    root 99121 0.0 0.4 4312 3812 ?? S 3:31AM 0:00.12 dnsadmin - REMOVEZONE - CWGp_Z3WNjoWsbRB4ZFMMf6RHDqr17cE (perl)
    root 99122 0.0 0.5 5968 4832 ?? I 3:31AM 0:00.02 dnsadmin - REMOVEZONE - CWGp_Z3WNjoWsbRB4ZFMMf6RHDqr17cE (perl)
    root 99156 0.0 0.4 4312 3812 ?? S 3:31AM 0:00.12 dnsadmin - REMOVEZONE - iKeA4RhYC6Abqn7hH65XcXLpQknwF84q (perl)
    root 99157 0.0 0.5 5968 4832 ?? S 3:31AM 0:00.02 dnsadmin - REMOVEZONE - iKeA4RhYC6Abqn7hH65XcXLpQknwF84q (perl)

    and:

    root 96545 0.0 0.0 628 0 ?? IWs - 0:00.00 /bin/sh -c /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/dnsqueue > /dev/null 2>&1
    root 96552 0.0 0.2 2816 2288 ?? I 3:15AM 0:00.17 /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/dnsqueu

    Right - The issue is still there even though dnsqueue is not running, so that’s not the problem.

    Again this particular server, a member of the DNS cluster running regular CPanel not the DNSONLY install, is having a problem it seems when ever it needs to save zones / update / delete.

    The system is FreeBSD and WHM / CPanel version is: WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-R82

    I'll submit a ticket to CPanel if I'm not able to find any kind of solution today / tomorrow.
