How To Monitor Resource Limit Information In cPanel?

At KemuHost, we use CloudLinux for our Linux Hosting plans. It allows monitoring the account resource usage that helps to improve server stability and performance.

If your account continuously hits the resource limit, it may go down and show a 508 error. In cPanel, you can view problematic processes and database queries that are running on your account. It allows you to know what is the reason for exceeding the resource limit. You can monitor resource limit information through cPanel.

How Does The Snapshot Helpful To Troubleshoot CPU Resources Limit?

Suppose a cPanel account resource monitor dashboard suggests that CPU resource has been limited for the past 24 hours. To view more information on this, you will need to click on the snapshot.

In the snapshot tab, you will find the below four details.

  • PID: It shows the process ID.
  • CMD: You can view the actual command running for that process ID.
  • CPU: Total CPU usage for the process. Here, you will find an actual file that exceeds the CPU capacity. It will give you the number in percentage (%). What percentage of CPU usage is used?
  • MEM: It will show the amount of memory the same process ID uses in MB.

Using this information, you can find out which process or file uses high CPU usage on your website. You can involve your developer and fix the code of that script. So it is always better to monitor resource limit information of your cPanel account.
