    well, struggling with this issue since ombutel, following script helps out, I know it is not the best solution, but I cronjob it every 6 hours and it helps. Since it is mostly the fail2ban database getting corrupted.

     

    F2Blog=”/var/log/fail2ban.log”
    F2Bdb=”/var/lib/fail2ban/fail2ban.sqlite3″

    # Now let us clean up
    echo “Stopping Fail2Ban Service”
    sudo service fail2ban stop
    echo “Truncating Fail2Ban Log File”
    sudo truncate -s 0 $F2Blog
    echo “Deleting Fail2Ban SQLite Database”
    sudo rm $F2Bdb
    echo “Restarting Fail2Ban Service”
    sudo service fail2ban restart
    echo “All Done”

    Thank you for this tip.  Fixed issue I was having with one of my VPS’s…. fail2ban was consuming 95-100% cpu for no reason.  I’ll keep eye on it for next few days.
