Description
If following logs in the FortiGate crash log are noticed:
324: 2021-02-25 08:44:03 the killed daemon is /bin/pyfcgid: status=0x0
This article will explain this.

Solution
The pyfcgid refers to a python script which is usually generated when the GUI times out.
324: 2021-02-25 08:44:03 the killed daemon is /bin/pyfcgid: status=0x0
Refer to the 'cleaning' of this script, which is killed/restarted by the FortiGate.
/bin/pyfcgid: status=0x0 <-----
status=0x0 means that this process will be terminated and deleted so that kernel can give space for other processes in terms of resource allocation.

In other works, status=0x0 is normal process shutdown due to job done without abnormality.

Thus, if these messages are visible in the crashlog, there is nothing to worry about this message.
