    For using the transfer tool to move between cpanels, are there issues with server load and databases to minimize?

    That is, do I need to
    1. Run the transfer tool at lowest use time of day?
    2. Turn off databases during the transfer? Any other interaction that should be suspended?
    3. Does the transfer tool need a minimum free disk space on the OLD server (the one that I am copying from) in order to complete?

    Hello,

    There's typically no need to exclude databases from the transfer or run the transfer tool at a specific time of the day unless your server is already experiencing performance issues. As far as disk space on the source server, it will need enough space to handle a gzip archive of the largest user account. That said, the following options are available in "WHM >> Transfer Tool" under the "Advanced" section should you need to use them:

    Low Priority
    Number of Transfer Threads:
    Number of Restore Threads:
    Use Incremental Backups Speed-up


    You can read more about the Transfer Tool options and migrating to a new server at:

    Transfer Tool - Documentation - cPanel Documentation
    cPanel Migration Services and Guides - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thank you.
