    Hello cPanel Community :)
    Can someone explain what idle workers are?

    Are they like stuck processes that are doing nothing?

    I see this in my WHM:

    9 requests currently being processed, 121 idle workers

    They are idle apache workers, basically they are not doing anything and waiting for a client connection.

    Some good info in the apache docs you can read over if you are interested:

    worker - Apache HTTP Server
