    I am trying to figure out what is the utility or "wrapper" that helps backups to only run when load is below a certain amount.

    I remember reading about this somewhere but I can't recall....

    Basically, we have a cron job (maldet) that uses a very high amount of disk io ("find" command) and it is causing iowait% to go to 99% for the duration of the run. This causes the server to become unresponsive, etc...

    So I am wondering if there is some way to "limit" this cron job using the same process the cpanel backups uses...

    Thanks!
