Magento CE - Cron Jobs using 100% CPU. Need Help.

Postby msjpt » Tue Feb 04, 2014 4:15 pm


Im running Magento Community latest version ( with the PHP 5.4 and also the APPSEC-212 Security Patch and im getting CPU usage of 100%.

I have contacted my hosting provider support team to check this, and they told me that the problem was related with cron jobs on my Magento installtion that are making multiple connections at the same time. They have identify the cron jobs causing this problem as being the following:

/usr/bin/php /home/xxxxx/public_html/xxx/cron.php -mdefault
/usr/bin/php /home/xxxxx/public_html/xxx/cron.php -malways

Does anyone know the solution for this problem? Any advice?
