Sounds like a background process has crashed on the server and needs restarting.

Yeah I thought that and tried rebooting but no help. It appears to be Sphix which I believe is attached to the SQL database. Anyone who knows more than me (won't be hard) I'm all ears.

Guessing it's a tool that auto updates? Judging by their site it's still running. Last update was October 2018 and though there are changes and warnings in the release notes it'd be strange for any issues to only show now. Mentions a change to the api though.
I'm no db analyst but I swear the indexing is f***ed. Long page loads and knackered search point to db issues in my experience.

It's unfortunately more embarrassing than that haha there was a different issue which I sorted which required a server reboot. Following the reboot the Sphinx service hasn't rebooted or has become corrupt. I've tried checking it's status from console but I get nothing, but it not running can cause that. No idea how to restart it as it's not a service within WHM by the looks.

Seen these?

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7902505/how-gracefully-restart-sphinx-search-daemon-after-reindexing
https://serverfault.com/questions/8619/how-do-i-make-sphinx-restart-when-i-reboot-my-ubuntu-server

I mean we aint reindexed, but Dave did db work. Think it was upgrades and moving things about but not sure of detail. Speaking to him he didn't do any indexing. Might still translate, though.

Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

Is this an option or will it cause more problems?

I'll flag it in Admin.  Been no chat on it, and if possible it would be some time down the line, but I'll start the ball rolling.  It could also no be possible, will let you know.
