    I'm trying to manage load on a server, and am keen to stop non-essential services, such as:

    entropychat
    interchange
    melange

    My question - is there a way I can detect which hosting accounts have installed (and are actively using) which service to help me decide whether or not I can 'safely' disable or turn it off?

    Anyone?

    Is there a find/locate/grep command or script I can run on my server that will tell me definitively, for each service such as interchange, melange, and entropychat:

    a) which hosting accounts have installed these apps via cpanel
    b) whether any of them are actively being used (eg. logs file generated bu them)?

    I know very little about any of these services, so perhaps anyone who does know about them will be able to propose a test for their existence and use on a per hosting account basis?

    Thanks for your help.

    I found out how to find if interchange has been installed on any hosting accounts. From the command line:

    locate catalogs
