    Hello,

    You can 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.

    Hi
    Many Thanks
    our load average most time is 20-25
    before migration to new backup system "Extra CPUs for server load" was default value and backup was generate and transfer without any problem

    BUT

    after migration to new backup system we need to change this value to 8 or 12 to finish backup and then upload to remote FTP.

    Hello,

    This suggests there's potentially an issue with the amount of resources your server is utilizing. The following thread is a good place to start when troubleshooting the source of a high load average:

    Troubleshooting high server loads on Linux servers

    Let us know if this helps.

    Thank you.
