    We've installed a trial of cloudlinux onto our cpanel-server and it works great! There
    is only one thing we've to solve:

    We use Zabbix for monitoring. On the cpanel-server the zabbix-agent is installed to
    collect informations. After installing cloudlinux the agent isn't able to collect some
    informations like the running processes of httpd/mysql/...

    I think cloudlinux blocks the zabbix-user to read this informations, normally thats a good
    feature, but for monitoring purpose it isn't :(

    Is there any possibility to exclude this user from the cloudliunx restrictions? We don't want
    to run zabbix-agent with the root-user.

    Thanks for help!

    CloudLinux does block users from seeing other users files.
    You can allow zabbix to see those files by using fs.proc_super_gid sysctl parameter

    Set it to group id under which zabbix process is executed
    Exact details are here:
