proftpd and ESXi 5.5


I installed proftpd on host ESXi 5.5, It's work perfectly but after several hours, proftpd is blocked :

the proftpd daemon process forks itself, to create a new proftpd process for each connection but after several hours for no reason, fork's process are created and deleted continuously (without client connection)

Do you happen to have a load balancer in front of your FTP server, or anything which would perform a "health check" by making a connection to that server?

(Sometimes that type of networking equipment can make use of your "connection slots")
