How to Check Resources Usage on cPanel

Locating the metrics of your hosting plan inside cPanel

Updated over a week ago

One of the most useful functionalities of cPanel is that it allows you to monitor the resources used by your websites. Keeping track of your resource usage can help you avoid overload, and manage your website more efficiently.

To check the resource usage, log into your cPanel account. You will find the Statistics bar on the right side of your screen:

The Statistics sidebar on cPanel

The Statistics section provides some general metrics such as disk usage, email accounts, inodes, and more. It is an overview of the resources you are currently using. Here is a detailed list of the Statistics content:

  • Addon Domains – the number of domains added to your hosting plan

  • Inodes the amount of all the files located on your hosting plan; for instance, an email message counts as one inode, while an email message with two attachments counts as 3 inodes

  • Disk Usage the used storage space containing your current files and processes

  • Bandwidth – the monthly data transfer of your hosting plan

  • Subdomains the number of created subdomains

  • Email accounts – the number of created email accounts

  • Autoresponders the number of automatic replies set up in your email accounts

  • Forwarders the number of forwarders set up in your email accounts

  • Email Filters – the number of email filters set up in your current account and their limits

  • FTP Accounts the number of FTP accounts

  • MySQL Databases the number of databases you have and the limit of databases that can be created; this metric is very important as it directly impacts your plan’s performance and disk space, so keep this in mind when creating a new database

  • CPU Usage – the CPU power consumed by the hosting plan in percentage

  • Entry Processes the number of PHP processes executing to handle your website requests

  • Physical Memory Usage the amount of physical memory used

  • IOPS – Input/Output per second, that is, how much data is read/written per second on your hosting plan

  • I/O Usage the amount of input and output used by your hosting plan

  • Number of Processes – the number of currently running processes

For more details, check the Resource Usage section:

The Faults graph includes the following concepts:

  • CPUf – average CPU usage in percentage faults

  • EPf average entry processes or concurrent web server request faults

  • VMemF – value shows the maximum amount of memory allocated by process faults

  • NprocF new processes created faults

  • PMemF – memory failures, i.e. situations when processes allocate too much memory and new requests of clients can not be served

  • IOf – timed out the usual data written time

  • IOPSf timed out the amount of usual data written

That's it! Now you will know where to find and how to read the resources usage of your hosting plan on cPanel 😊
