    I transferred some accounts to another server for this client, several days go, using WHMs copy function. The strange thing is that this happened several days ago. I didn't transfer any accounts of his today. Why then, do I find these processes running today by user1 and user2 eating up all off the CPU resources pressuring up server load to above 5?

    User Domain %CPU %MEM Mysql Processes
    user1 172.15 0.36 0.0
    Top Process %CPU 97.0 tar pczfv cpmove-user1.tar.gz cpmove-user1
    user2 57.62 0.03 0.0
    Top Process %CPU 97.1 tar pczfv cpmove-user2.tar.gz cpmove-user2
    Top Process %CPU 97.0 tar pczfv cpmove-juser2.tar.gz cpmove-user2

    I had to kill the processes to get the load down. I'm just confused as to why these processes is suddenly running in the server. Does anybody here know what might be happening? No users on this server have SSH access. Hoping for some input.

    I never go by WHM when it comes to resources being used and always go by what Top tells me. With that said, what was the Browser output when doing the Transfer? (i.e. did you scroll to the bottom of the Frame and see: Account Setup Completed -- or something similar?

    Could be the file was to big to move and the process was picking up where it left off or related to a backup on the firs Server? Just guessing out loud as it does seem odd, the Transfer process would initate itself a few days later.
