Sometimes,too many resources was used by one or two host users.I was wondering how do you make it so cpanel/whm auto suspends an account that goes over a specific cpu usage.

I search it on the internet but got nothing.

Same here, I'd appreciate a code like this, with its own error message. Google shows nothing but other hogs.

Go on, have a guess
There's no such functionality in cPanel and it would be very difficult to do since much of the resource usage on a server is shared and cannot be easily attributable to a specific account.

bluehost has their own in-house script which does this but no one is able to get this from the net :rolleyes:

it would seem that it can be done

ive had a cpanel account suspended for cpu usage, and was told it was suspended automaticly, after reading this, i wonder if it was 'automatic'

I would defenatly like to see this as a option, maybe not suspend, but at least for emails to be sent.

Suspending of accounts automatically is not yet part of native cPanel/WHM functionality (as of writing) but may be something your web hosting provider has implemented themselves.

We do not yet have an ETA for this functionality, but you can monitor the progress of our implementation as updates become available by subscribing to the following thread:
