    Re: What does this mean? [cpbackup] Setting I/O priority to reduce system l

    I was wondering if I can give more priority to the backup process?
    prio 3 gives me a lot of: Waiting for load to go down to continue... when copying the homedir....
    It is taking way to long now to backup within my time frame.

    Any help much appreciated.

    You could simply increase the WHM > Tweak Settings > Extra CPUs for server load option from 0 to 5 or 10, which means that load of 5 or 10 on the machine will need to exist before the machine delays the backups. You don't have to renice the process in order to increase the load threshold considered too high for backups to proceed.
