When I terminate large customer accounts (20GB+ / many inodes) via the WHM - server load shoots so high that the server is unresponsive for a long time (depending on the size 5-15minutes for example).

Any way to throttle cPanel from choking itself out like this when doing a simple account delete?

Thanks in advance!

Hey there! That's interesting as this is one I haven't heard before, and I'm not seeing any current issues like this on my end.

Do you happen to know how many inodes you were using? I setup an account that was using 100000 inodes and I didn't see any odd issues when terminating it.

Thanks for the additional details. None of that seems too crazy to me at all, so I'm wondering if there are other underlying issues with the machine, like a disk that's a bit slower than it should be.

If you'd like to submit a ticket to our support team we could do some testing on our end to ensure there isn't an issue with cPanel itself on the system.
