LFD Excessive resource usage

If you have not tweaked your ConfigServer Security & Firewall configuration, you may be receiving tons of these notifications:

LFD Excessive resource usage

To fix the above, provided you no longer want to receive them, you need to edit your CSF configuration file here:


and find the following:

# This User Process Tracking option sends an alert if any cPanel user process
# exceeds the memory usage set (MB). To ignore specific processes or users use
# csf.pignore
# Set to 0 to disable this feature
PT_USERMEM = “256”

The default value is 256, you can increase it or set it to 0 to disable these notifications for good. Save the file and reload the firewall:

csf -r

It is done now.
