    I started a full /home backup last night. Now i am unable to connect via ssh, cPanel or WHM.

    I am the server admin (VNP - digitalocean), how can i stop the backup process and get everything responsive again?

    Hello,

    I'm happy to see the issue is now fixed. The following URL is helpful if the load average on your system is high when backups run:

    Troubleshooting High Load on Linux Systems


    Note that you can also browse to the "Stats and Logs" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings" and modify the following option:

    "Extra CPUs for server load"

    Per it's description:

    The load average above the number of CPUs at which cpuwatch, cpanellogd, backups, and CPU stats consider the system to be in a critical load state. For example, a server with 4 physical CPUs and a value of 2 in this field will be considered “critical” in these cases once the load reaches 6.


    Thank you.
