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 overloading, and manage your website more efficiently.

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

The cPanel Statistics sidebar

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 account

  • Inodes - the amount of all the files located on your hosting account. For example, an email message counts as one inode, while an email message with two attachments will count as 3 inodes

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

  • Bandwidth - the monthly data transfer of your account

  • Subdomains - the amount of created subdomains

  • Email accounts - how many email accounts are already created

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

  • Forwarders - the number of forwarders set up on your email accounts

  • Email filters - how many email filters are set up in your current account and its limit

  • FTP accounts - the number of existing FTP accounts

  • MySQL Databases - how many 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 it in mind when creating a new database

  • CPU Usage - the CPU power consumed by the hosting account 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 account

  • I/O Usage - the amount of input and output used by your account

  • Number of processes - shows the number of currently running processes

For a deeper analysis, you can check Resource Usage:

The cPanel Metrics section showing how to access the Resource Usage page

Click on the Current usage tab to find detailed information about the usage of your hosting plan in graphic form:

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 your cPanel usage! 😊
