Slow server after last update rules 2017.10.03


After last update rules, two servers with comodo waf and whm are too slow. Apache slow response and high load.
Everything back normal when I disable mod_security.

Could you help me to find where is the problem?

Thank you

Please, check modsec_audit.log and error.log.
I think there is an answer in these files and I can just exclude some rules.


Thank you for reply.
I could see some errors in this file, but I don´t know what is the rule. This information isn´t in the log. Please, see bellow:

Could you help me?

By the time, when I know what´s the rule is causing the problem, what´s the best way to disable it? I´m using comodo rules in cpanel vendors.

Thank you very much.

Best regards
