lfd on ixnfo.com: Excessive resource usage: cpanelroundcube (4606 (Parent PID:6760)) Time: Tue Jul 7 16:48:33 2020 +0300 Account: cpanelroundcube Resource: Process Time Exceeded: 9023 > 1800 (seconds) Executable: /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/php/73/sbin/php-fpm Command Line: php-fpm: pool user_cpanelroundcube PID: 4606 (Parent PID:6760) Killed: No

After that, in the next window that appeared, I clicked to restart CSF.
You can also specify a line manually in the /etc/csf/csf.pignore file.
