    We have about 500 websites per server, and use the typical tools to manage a cpanel server.

    I'm wondering if there is an easier way to know which websites are the busiest, in order of server resource utilization.

    Something like a simple list would be great.

    Not sure if this can be easily done, since there's a lot of variables involved (some sites use PHP, some use heavy mysql, and difficult to correlate which site is using them)... but surely with all the tech at our hands there must be a way to more easily know what websites are using the majority of server resources without having to dig through and interpret the results from a dozen different unix tools?

    cpanel... is supposed to make server management easier.. and such a tool would be great.

    Does it exist?

    For resource tracking purposes it will help if the system is using both SuExec and SuPHP so that CGI and PHP processes run as the appropriate user account and not using the shared system user like that of user "nobody" for Apache.

    The following features in WHM may be used to obtain information about CPU, RAM, Apache and MySQL resource utilization; the first tool shown below, Daily Process Log in Server Status, includes daily averages:

    WHM: Main >> Server Status >> Daily Process Log
    Documentation: Daily Process Log

    WHM: Main >> Server Status >> Apache Status
    Documentation: Apache Status

    WHM: Main >> SQL Services >> Show MySQL Processes
    Documentation: Show MySQL Processes

    WHM: Main >> System Health >> Show Current CPU Usage
    Documentation: Show Current CPU Usage

    WHM: Main >> System Health >> Show Current Running Processes
    Documentation: Show Current Running Processes

    We review and consider all feedback and ideas for new features; for this purpose we have created a special feature requests forums area. Currently there is an active feature request for an automatic suspension feature (e.g., for excessive resource usage); I recommend contributing your unique ideas and suggestions to the existing feature request thread as linked here: Auto Account Suspend - cPanel Forums
