    Hi , I have vps for a customer with centos 7.3 under a vmware 6 host ( with hw raid 10 )
    the vps had around 3 month of uptime till last night it hung with multiple email alerts of
    HANG: ⚠: chkservd.
    I rebooted the vm , and saw that it had a fsck error on /dev/sda7 which was /tmp partition.

    at the time of error there is a process named (imedated) using full cpu.

    after the reboot it happened again after some hours when there was no backup process on any high i/o process active . there is no mail in exim queue. and network traffic is normal.
    this time I had a ssh session open and I could see a process (imedated) using cpu and I killed it with sigterm . but after some minutes it returned.
    in /var/log/messages I saw these errors :

    PID     Owner     CPU %     Memory %     Command
    29033     root     98.46     0.52     (imedated)

    kernel is :
    uname -r

    CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)

    cat /usr/local/cpanel/version

    also the cpanel is on release which is now 66.0.17 on my other servers.
    but when I do /scripts/upcp or via whm . it stays on 66.0.14 !

     Detected version '' from version file.
    [2017-09-03 21:18:56]   Running version '' of updatenow.

    any suggestions?

    This looks to relate to your system's Time and Date service:


    I recommend reaching out to a system administrator or your hosting provider if this is leading to high CPU usage, especially since this started happening after a file system error.

    You can review the "CPANEL=" entry in the /etc/cpupdate.conf file to see if it's configured to use a specific version of cPanel. You'd set it to "release" if you want to use the "Release" build tier. EX:

    # grep CPANEL= /etc/cpupdate.conf
    Thank you.
