Description

This article will explain the pyfcgid entry in the FortiGate crash log.
If the following logs in the FortiGate crash log are noticed:

324: 2021-02-25 08:44:03 the killed daemon is /bin/pyfcgid: status=0x0

 

Scope

FortiGate



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 a normal process shutdown due to a job done without abnormality.

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