    I like to know why resellers are able to view munin plug-in.

    This aplication it's really a administration one and not something that a reseller has to have access to.

    Correct me if I'm wrong?

    Definably, this should be limited to root right away.

    It would be good if you could select what resellers see, as many addons just show a blank page in resellers WHM

    Could you define what the munin plug-in is. :eek:

    You mean the access to a special path or so on ?
    I think a administrator can enabling the access.

    Since it's a new feature, logging an enhancement request in bugzilla would be a good idea and post a link to it so that others can vote on the idea.

    You can only log support tickets if you purchase your cPanel license directly from cPanel or otherwise directed by cPanel staff. If you do not purchase directly from cPanel then you have to log support tickets through your cPanel license provider.

    Now, please stay on topic.

    No, it's been in development since at least 2003.

    A point to note is that I've found on the many and varied systems that I've worked on that munin is a serious resource hog and I wouldn't personally recommend it.

    I could not find an existing request in the bugzilla system to add this feature, so I created one:

    http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/show_bug.cgi?id=4389

    Please vote for it, if you would like cpanel to give the option to restrict access to the Munin statistics to *only* accounts with root access.

    :D
