Just shut the server down and Strat back up and see if the resource limit jumps again. Then I would go in and still killing process one by one. if this is a clients server of yours I would suspend and give them a few options. 1. Upgrade to a plan that fits your needs. 2. Move to a different web host.

Thanks for suggesting, it’s one of my droplets on Linode, so far the support only told me its self managed droplets and run ClamAv - it too helpful :)

You can install maldet and start scanning. If you can't solve the issue, you can hire a system admin.

I have tried this but this process starts again and again
I have then deleted files also and it was stopped but now again its started

What's maldet? Like ClamAv?

Then I'd suggest to reinstall the system. Upload the files from your backup after reinstall.

Yes, its malware/virus scanner.

check inside "/etc/rc.local" and other startup files. Maybe you have it attached to start up with system boot. If you see something wrong in it, remove and restart server
