How come myserver has a higher load when backing up files within the server, just on a different hard disk?

And how come today its doing backing up again? I set it for weekly.

The backup process is more than just moving files especially if you are storing tar.gz backups. The archiving and compressing are most cpu intensive tasks which can take quite a while to gather, archive and compress user files.

One way to save some processing is using incremental backups. This will only modify files that have changed but this does require more disk space as it is not archived and compressed.

Here's a reply for you...

Selecting Weekly backup will give you monthly as well unless you choose not to retain them below.)

Sounds like you've not configured it as you'd like. And if you were to check out this link,
CPU/Memory/MySQL Usage you might see that gzip is whats causing server load during backup as it compresses your files.


Lot's to learn using cPanel. And lots of good Info on these forums. Most problems you'll come across, someones been there before you and there's a thread here somewhere that'll help you understand more about them.

A great place to start, is here.

Thanks Jay.

No thanks to the guy below you. I asked a question, not for you to tell me to search the forums as I already have and I enjoy personal responces anyhow.

Could have just given me a link if you knew where a thread just like mine was.
