    hi i upgrade to 53
    now i have thousands of emails on my inbox

    example email:

    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    This is cPanel stats runner on sysop.me.com!
    While processing the log files for user me, the cpu has been
    maxed out for more then a 6 hour period. The current load/uptime line on the server at the time of
    this email is
    4:05pm up 13:26, 1 user, load average: 2.67, 3.73, 5.18
    You should check the server to see why the load is so high and take
    steps to lower the load. If you want stats to continue to run even with a high load; Edit
    /var/cpanel/cpanel.config and change extracpus to a number larger then 0 (run
    /usr/local/cpanel/startup afterwards to pickup the changes).


    i want to stop this mass emails, i have 3459 email on my inbox now, i edited the file /var/cpanel/cpanel.config and restarted cpanel but it did not stop

    please help, i know its bug, but its killing my inbox

    If you have tons of these messages spooling up and flooding you:

    killall -9 sendmail

    rm /var/spool/exim/input -rf

    Dump your inbox if it's choked with these things, set up a filter to send more of the same to /dev/null. Restart exim.

    Sorry, Nick, but this one was a particularly bad idea, since with backups and stats both running at the same times on various boxes, the load is naturally going to be higher than normal. The machines on which we have seen this problem are all currently at build 57. I'd love to see this go away in 57+n.

    I have an average on server load 6-7 with 16 accounts
    One site has used over 30 GB bandwitdh from Dec 1 - Dec 10. I get 2-3 server overload mails / day.

    It hasn't been any problem until now when Cpanel upgraded to stable 69.

    Is there anyway I could optimize his site? Does the bandwidth go down if i move his MySql to another server ( It takes about 15 GB of the bandwidth). I have a server wich is almost empty.
