Understanding the detailed list of your resource usage
Updated over a week ago

When one or more limits of your hosting plan are reached, you will have the option to show a detailed list on the Resource Usage page in hPanel. Just scroll down to find More Details and click on it. The list will contain the following:

The detailed list of resource usage in hPanel
  1. The exact time when the limit was hit

  2. CPU usage at that moment

  3. Memory usage at that moment

  4. The exact process that caused the limit to be met

This is useful information for troubleshooting or optimizing your website.

Most Common Cases for Hitting Limits


This process is related to the File Manager, where operations like archiving can cause it to slow down. If you are experiencing any issues with the File Manager, you can try performing actions using an FTP client instead. Another option is to stop the processes by clicking on the banner at the bottom of the Resource Usage section on our panel:

lsphp (Litespeed PHP) is the process responsible for dealing with all of the PHP files required to serve the content to your website visitors. When this process hits limits, it can appear either by itself or in relation to a specific file:

  • wp-cron.php – this process is executed on every page load, as WordPress checks if certain actions need to be run. A better approach is disabling wp-cron and using the Cronjobs function on hPanel

  • High CPU and memory usage with few processes – this usually indicates the need to optimize your website, as only a few visitors are generating excessive CPU usage


The most common reasons for mysqld limit to be hit are:

  • Missing database indexes

  • Large queries

  • Several resource-intensive JOIN operations

All of these can cause your MySQL query to create large temporary tables, which can take up memory, increase the processing time, slow down, or even lose connection to the database server. To solve this, we recommend using our Repair database option.

For WordPress websites, you can use a database optimization plugin such as Advanced Database Cleaner. This will delete any unused tables left from previous plugin installs so they won’t use resources.

In addition, you can build an index and look for any queries that take several seconds or have a high memory usage.

If you have optimized your website and the limits are still being hit consistently, it may indicate that your website has grown and needs more resources to handle all its concurrent visits. In that case, you can consider upgrading your hosting plan to increase all the resources 😊
