Hello! I am fairly new at VirtualMin. Have a dedicated server setup with CentOS 6.3 and installed Virtualmin and Webmin from scratch a few days ago. All went well - I then proceeded to move my Cpanel sites over using the Migrate Server option, again all went well (bar a few minor hiccups). I finished all that yesterday, and today went to check back on the server load. During the migrations, the load spiked to around 6 and 7 for hours (some sites were 15+GB), but today I saw everything had settled back down to normal-ish levels:
1.37 (1 mins) , 1.37 (5 mins) , 1.36 (15 mins)
Since I have 29 websites on this server, all running Wordpress and some fairly busy, this, I thought, was OK?
However, when I went to look at my Running Processes (236 in total), the top of the list looks like this:
ID Owner CPU Command
17 root 99.5 % [migration/4]
14 root 98.5 % [migration/3]
26 root 94.2 % [migration/7]
07 root 90.2 % [migration/1]
23 root 88.7 % [migration/6]
20 root 81.8 % [migration/5]
06 root 75.9 % [migration/0]
11 root 58.9 % [migration/2]
6937 apache 7.0 % /usr/sbin/httpd
976 apache 4.3 % /usr/sbin/httpd
27616 apache 3.8 % /usr/sbin/httpd
21488 apache 3.3 % /usr/sbin/httpd
19136 apache 3.2 % /usr/sbin/httpd
19141 apache 3.2 % /usr/sbin/httpd
19142 apache 3.2 % /usr/sbin/httpd
19143 apache 3.2 % /usr/sbin/httpd
What are those migration processes? Are they left over from the server migrations yesterday? I tried killing one of them, but nothing happened when I clicked the Kill button - the page just reloaded and the process continued on as normal. Will these processes go away by themselves or is there something I should be doing?
This server runs on a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1245 V2 @ 3.40GHz , 8 cores with 32GB of RAM.
Thank you in advance for any advice! :-)
