Excessive resource usage Email Notification Print

  • 0

Why am I receiving email notifications with subjects such as the following?


lfd on $hostname: Excessive resource usage: $username




These notifications are generated by the 3rd party software ConfigServer LFD, not cPanel. The resource usage limits can be modified by changing the PT_USERMEM and PT_USERTIME settings on the following page in WHM:


Home >> Plugins >> ConfigServer Security & Firewall >> Firewall Configuration 


Alternatively, you can configure LFD to ignore certain processes or users in the /etc/csf/csf.pignore file. The following thread on ConfigServer's forum has instructions for managing this file:




For support with LFD you will need to contact ConfigServer directly:
