I have used LVEInfo::getUsage (cPanel API2 function) to get the server's historical memory usage. But I can't get the server's current memory usage. How can I do?

Depends, how are you trying to obtain it? Only via the API or?

The easiest way would be SSH using the command:

Code:
free -m
but yeah would come down to the method in which you want to obtain it.

Hi,
my server administrator doesn't allow me to use the command line. Besides, I can't read the file "/proc/lve/list", which can also get the usage information of system. It seems the file doesn't exist. So how can I get the current memory usage and other usage information without using command line or reading the file "/proc/lve/list"?

Hello,

The "lvetop" utility provides the information you are seeking:

CloudLinux Documentation

However, it's not available without root access to the server (and shell access). There's no corresponding UAPI/cPanel API 2 function for this purpose. I recommend opening a feature request for it via:

Thank you.
