    This is designed for those using cPanel/WHM on a VPS (where memory is typically a scarce resource). This setting will curb the amount of memory consumption of processes cPanel/WHM relies upon. However, this will likely cause higher CPU/DiskIO consumption. As a result, this is not recommended for dedicated servers where memory is typically not a major concern.

    Is it necessary to reboot for changes to take effect if you modify this setting?

    You should either reboot or run the following

    /usr/local/cpanel/startup
    /scripts/restartsrv_imap
    /scripts/restartsrv_exim
