Is it not possible for cPanel to add some sort of limit, where backups will run no higher than a set limit. They will carry out backup's that use a little less CPU/Memory over a more longer period of time, not effecting server performance as much as they do at the moment.

Is this possible to do in the future would anyone know :)

and edit the status
The load average that will cause the server status to appear red (leave blank for default):

note: by changing this will cause your backup times to take much longer as it will wait until the load goes down to continue with back ups

Thats pretty much unrestricted. I do not know the specs of your box mine is set a 3 but its a dual xeon (back up does not stop do to load) I used to run some p4's and had it set at 2 used to take obout 6 hours to back up 200 sites 512 MEM the other would take 4 hours to back up 300 sites 1000 MEM both boxes would stop the back up to wait for the load to go down


Its a trade off back up speed for server load you will have to play around with it to get it they way you want it

P4, 1GB, hmm but if I set it to show red at 3 it will show red a lot during updates/backup's

It runs around 0.20, so if I set it to 4 the backup's will run for 4 hours around 900MB gz
