    Hello,

    It seems our cpanel server has a process that runs periodically which looks like this:

    /usr/bin/find /home/user1/public_html /home/user2/public_html /home/user3/public_html ....

    It lists every cpanel account on the server.

    Can someone tell me what this is doing? It typically runs at the same time as backups, which brings load very high...

    Thanks.

    You can check it out in the WHM Daily Process Logs or do a
    You might want to check for cronjobs which maybe doing something at:
    /var/spool/cron

    Do you have Linux Malware Detect (maldet) installed?

    Hello :)

    Please run the following command the next time you notice this:

    Code:
    # ps auxf
    This should let you know the parent process that it's running underneath.

    Thank you.
