    It seems like Synchronet Control Panel, at least on my sysstem is hoggint resources. It consistently hots CPU at over 70%.

    Is that normal or is there something else I need to look at.

    No, that's not normal. What version of sbbsctrl are you running? Have you tried stopping servers or services to find which is at fault?

    I am running v3.19

    This morning it was hogging the CPU. I shut it down and restarted it and watched it for a while and it was behaving ok.

    I sent some mail and just a little bump in CPU use. Not sure what it is doing when it does jump up. Untll I restart it, it does not goe dow in usage

    Next time this happens, try stopping one server at a time (don't shut down sbbsctrl) and see which one fixes the "hogging".

    Another thing to look at would be the logs of the servers (and the event thread) to see what was happening last.

    Not normal... though I've seen that from the web service(s) when they're being actively scanned such as via bot, or indexing from google, etc. It should settle down when they're done, generally... you can try adding a robots.txt in the web root to deny scanning (if you don't mind not getting indexed directly).

    The IRCd has seemed to leak as well in the past, not that I've seen it do that in several years though.

    I'm running via docker, with most of the separate services running separately, so I can identify when one goes kind of rogue... I have irc and nntp separate, but the rest of "services" running together. Telnet/SSH, Web (3), FTP and Mail/SMTP are all running separately as well for my config.
