Hello,

I do believe
WHM>>Server Configuration >>Tweak Settings -> Extra CPU's for server load

Is what you're looking for. It will not allow the process to consume a large amount of CPU time depending on what value you place. The explanation of the setting is as follows:

The load average above the number of CPUs at which cpuwatch, cpanellogd, backups, and CPU stats consider the system to be in a critical load state. For example, a server with 4 physical CPUs and a value of 2 in this field will be considered “critical” in these cases once the load reaches 6.

Hi @behinam

Extra CPUs for server load
The load average above the number of CPUs at which cpuwatch, cpanellogd, backups, and CPU stats consider the system to be in a critical load state. For example, a server with 4 physical CPUs and a value of 2 in this field will be considered “critical” in these cases once the load reaches 6.
It's based off the physical CPU's so if you set that to 1 it would consider the threshold to be a load of 5 on the server.
