The advantage of shared hosting is the inclusion of multiple users on the same server. This also reduces the cost of hosting per user.
However, shared hosting often gets a poor response because a user misuses the server resources. Ultimately, this can lead to service interruptions that affect all users. Here comes the cPanel Resource Monitor.
At Bobcares, we regularly receive requests from shared server owners to implement resource monitoring as part of our server management services.
Today we will see different ways to configure the cPanel Resource Monitor and how the engineers at Bobcares implement it.
cPanel Resource Monitoring Request
Before we go into detail, let’s see why we need a resource monitor on the cPanel server.
Many customers start their business with shared hosting servers. These servers allow them to sell server resources to multiple users. The owner of the server can add additional server resources as his or her business grows. It would therefore be beneficial for both the user and the owner of the server. In addition, control panels such as cPanel help you to easily manage user accounts.
Unfortunately, in the case of real shared servers, it is necessary to ensure adequate control of resources. Due to our experience in server management, our specialized engineers generally find it useful to monitor the resources in these scenarios.
i. Ensuring server stability
The main advantage of resource monitoring is to increase the stability of the server. This ensures that the resources on the server are well distributed among the users. It controls the use of disk space and memory and also ensures that the computing power is distributed correctly.
(i) Follow-up of a suspicious transaction
Again, resource monitoring is an effective way to identify suspicious processes. In general, a malicious process consumes too much memory or processing power from the server. This slows down all other processes on the server. And if we can identify the user who is running the process, it really helps to get the server up and running again.
Did you know that server downtime can be avoided with resource monitoring?] We can monitor your servers 24 hours a day.
Miscellaneous methods of resource management
So far, we have identified a need for tools to control the resources of the billboard. Now let’s take a look at the different ways our specialized engineers take care of their customers.
1. WHM server status
By default, cPanel servers have the ability to view resource usage at any time. You can see all these details on the status page of the MHO server. To view the status of each service on the server, we need to click on the Service Status section, as shown below
Here you will find the complete list of services, including the use of Apache and MySQL. It also provides a detailed list of processor usage and disk space.
2. CloudLinux LVE Manager
The basic information provided by the WHM may not be sufficient for advanced tracking of the resources. Some server owners may need a report for each individual account. In such cases, we have considered CloudLinux as one of the useful options.
Fortunately, LVE CloudLinux Manager shows the resource usage for each account. In the same way, you can restrict certain user resources. This allows the owner of the server to decide on the maximum consumption of resources by the user. It is also possible to warn users if they interrupt their use periodically. This makes it possible to move users to higher resource-based plans.
Here is a typical state of cPanel server resource utilization.
It clearly indicates each user’s memory usage.
But CloudLinux needs a license to work properly. That’s why our specialist engineers often recommend CloudLinux to customers who need good resource tracking.
Another way to monitor the use of cPanel resources is by using third party plugins such as Resource Monitor. It enables easy integration with the WHM and filters cPanel users with large resources based on CPU, memory, MySQL and disk usage. The installation of these plug-ins is also very easy.
Again, the choice of the right tool largely depends on the requirements of the customers, the type of server, etc.
Cpanel Resource Monitor is an efficient way to run a stable server. Today we saw the different ways our support engineers use to enable resource monitoring on shared servers.improve server performance,how to reduce server response time
