queueprocd failed @ xxx. A restart was attempted

After the recent cPanel update your mailbox may be filling up with the “queueprocd service failed” emails. For example:

( queueprocd failed @ Fri Jan 1 00:00:00 2010. A restart was attempted automagically. Service Check Method: [check command] ) .

This look like a small bug with the latest cPanel version where it adds the “queueprocd” service to the cPanel monitoring service “chkservd” but does not install the service. If you try to restart the “queueprocd” service, you will realize that the service is not installed.

root@server [~]# /scripts/restartsrv queueprocd
Sorry I don't know about queueprocd
root@server [~]# 

To remove or disable the service from the chkservd monitoring, either uncheck queueprocd from

WHM >> Service Manager

Or edit the file chkservd.conf

# pico /etc/chkserv.d/chkservd.conf

and remove the “queueprocd” entry. Restart the “cpanel” and the ‘chkservd’ service once you save the file.

# service cpanel restart
# /scripts/restartsrv chkservd

    Thank you for this. My mailbox was getting hammered by cpanel automagic alerts.
