server) would delete a file that would be accessed by php-fpm on this client.
(If you know about when it happens, you could do a raw packet capture at the
 server using "tcpdump -s 0 -w find.pcap" and then look at the packet capture
 in wireshark, looking for where file(s) get removed. It won't be easy for a busy
