    Hello Ashwini,
    Thanks for following up! This output of the command means that some software has been updated and WHM recommends you restart the server to apply these updates. But this is only on your decision - you can restart these services manually one by one, or leave them as they are because your kernel is secured/safe and this is the main purpose of KernelCare.
    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask here.
    Thank you for contacting us.
