    Is this normal? I get lots of these emails daily about excessive resource usage.

    Exceeded: 9034 > 1800 (seconds)
    Executable: /usr/bin/php
    Command Line: /usr/bin/php
    PID: 21174 (Parent PID:19604)
    Killed: No

    If you're unfamiliar with what this message is coming from and/or what it means...
    It's the ConfigServer Security & Firewall plugin that is install on your server and accessible through WHM.
    The warning emails vary, but this particular one is telling you that PHP is processing for a longer than usual amount of time. Unfortunately that's about all the email is telling you, it's now your job to find out why, or submit a trouble ticket and support will investigate the issue.

    Morning Penseur,

    Last time I received those emails it was because Wordpress on one of my accounts had been hacked. Is your server configured for suphp/suexec? If so you can look at top and see which user(s) php is spending so much time on.

    Thanks guys,
    I get emails about this almost every 5 min. I will submit a ticket. I only have one account on WHM for one site.
