    what's cpanel's stunnel is for?

    Is stunnel normally execute very long? What does this mean?

    Account: cpanel
    Resource: Process Time
    Exceeded: 70277 > 1800 (seconds)
    Executable: /usr/sbin/stunnel
    Command Line: /usr/sbin/stunnel /usr/local/cpanel/etc/stunnel/default/stunnel.conf.run
    PID: 3781
    Killed: No
    I understand that stunnel is running 70277 seconds already but why is it taking that long? what does it do?

    Nevermind figured it out. native-ssl is not installed in the box.

    My next question is why do we need native-ssl?

    Try running /usr/local/cpanel/bin/nativessl-install as root, then let me know if that resolves this issue.

    i actually did this then updated cpanel again using upcp before i posted here. i am waiting for the next logwatch email to see if it's still using stunnel.
