    Is it recommended to use one rather than both?

    I find mixed feelings about this on the net.

    cpHulk seems to take a lot more resources as it uses mySQL?

    cPhulk is a mess. It can lock you out from accessing your own server very easily. Just use CSF.

    Hopefully they add a feature to cphulk to not lock-out root, this would fix the worst issue with it (locking out legitimate admins during brute force attacks). cphulk will be a bit better once it starts blocking IPs in the firewall, but this is redundant anyway if you're using CSF.
