    Hello,

    on my cpanel account seen on image bellow (first process on the top) is running pkgacct, but i have set incremental backups on my WHM and im not running any manual backup on that account, so why it is running pkgacct?

    [Removed - Please use internal attachments]

    Also there is gtar running

    any way to decrease i/o caused by that process?

    Hello :)

    It's normal for backups to generate as the account username. Do you have "pigz" enabled under "Compression" in "Tweak Settings"? If not, you may find that feature helpful.

    Note: Please ensure you upload images directly to posts as attachments. Third-party imaging upload websites will often stop working over time, leaving incomplete forum posts.

    Thank you.

    Both incremental and tar methods of creating an account backup are handled by pkgacct.
