    Smile CSF PT_USERKILL option

    hello , i just installed csf on my new dedicated server with just 4 accounts , i got nearly 200 mails in just 1 hours stating some users using more than allotted memory and some process running more than 7200 seconds, i read on csf config file about this option :- PT_USERKILL ,but they themselves do not recommend using it ,any one successfully used this option ? any precautions to take ?

    CSF does generate such false positives with it's default settings. It needs to be tweaked as per your requirement i.e. the process that runs on your server, the resources they use, the time they take, etc, so others settings may not work for you.
