    Hi was curious when installing Cpanel at the part where it goes through Retrieving and staging the /cpanelsync/* .bz2 compressed files, does Cpanel at all make use of pbzip2 Parallel BZIP2 (PBZIP2) if it's detected or does it just use bzip2 ?

    pbzip2 is one of the few multi-threaded compression tools which not only gives speed ups for multi-threaded compression, but also for decompression as well so potentially lead to faster cpanel installs ?

    Hello :)

    I don't see any indication the installer utilizes pbzip2 (it's not installed as an RPM post-installation). You can open a feature request for this, or simple for the overall optimization of the cPanel installer at:

    Thank you.
