    Hi in whm looking at service status - cpu/memory/mysql usage i see a red band that says user is root, top process is 125% (2 cpu's) gzip, 2 mysql processes. Any advice in what is causing this overload.

    you probably find the cpanel backup is still running.

    on the command lien do "ps fax"

    find the line with gzip in it :)

    From our experience, only GZIP uses that amount of resources.

    If you do daily backups, try INCREMENTAL instead if you are not backing it to an off-site server.
