    Hello!

    As you know, cPanel has a Daily backup feature.

    I use this on all cpanel servers but theres one thing I really want to do.

    Ive noticed some user accounts are like 7.1 GB in size so the backup comes out to be really big and while cpbackup creates the backup, the server load goes really high (for the big accounts)

    I was wondering if theres some script we could use so that any accounts that exceed a certain size stop being backed up? i.e. in Configure Backup, you can select what users you want to backup. Is there any script that can automatically disable a users backup if it exceeds a certain size or at least notify the server admin so he/she disables it himself/herself?

    Hope I explained myself properly.

    Thanks!

    Have you tried using uncompressed backups? They take up more space but use a LOT less CPU.

    Talking gzip backup of big accounts is an issue. It will eat your server resources.
