    first at all, i would like to know what i must do to optimize my vps successfully:

    cpanel says:
    my vps only has 20gb space and i installed whm on one unique partition and centOS operative system..

    i dont understand when it says:

    all that are folders on the root...but why the instructions says "The following partitions"???


    i couldnt find any guide about how optimize whm for a vps or dedicate server...i found only persons who offers their services to optimize any server...(i would like to do it myself).

    Any website where i can find information about optimization?


    my vps has 3gb of memory...

    whm takes 60% of all the memory to that percentage normal for only 1 client and 1 reseller?

    i think that my whm needs a full optimization...i will reinstall the operative system again and whm, but first i would like to resolve all my questions

    thank you very much..
    not english speaker, sorry if i made some mistakes :)

    In *nix environments, partitions may look like "folders" under / but they actually are stored on the hard disk as different partitions.

    This does not mean everything within / must be a partition. For example, our basic partitioning setup (posted at Quick Start Installation Guide) has only / and /tmp partitions, meaning /var, /usr, /etc and so forth would essentially be folders within /.

    cPanel/WHM will automatically optimize itself for a VPS or dedicated server as part of the installation process.

    Regarding RAM consumption, see if most of that is "cache." If so, then that is okay since that's just disk cache. This can quickly be replaced with content that needs to be stored in RAM when needed. This just helps your server perform better since it has extra RAM available that is not being used. A more thorough explanation can be found by searching the internet for: Linux Ate My RAM.
