Share This Article [TheChamp-Sharing]

When investigating issues regarding performance on your server, usually the first place you will look is for the resource usages during the times the issues are encountered. In WHM, the resource usage for the cPanel user and the processes that it would run in the background can be found with the Daily Process Log for your Cloud VPS or Dedicated Server with a cPanel license.

Where To Find The Daily Process Log

Step One: Log into your WHM Administrator Dashboard

Step Two: From the upper left, type into the search box, Server Status. In the options listed, there will be Daily Process Log.

There will be several columns of information. Each that can be used to identify the resource usage of the particular user.

  • User – This is the user on the server that was tracked through cPanel.
  • Domain – If the user is a cPanel account, the primary domain for the cPanel user will be displayed here. If it is a system account, this column will be blank.
  • % CPU – This will list the Daily Average CPU Percentage that has been used by the user. These values will be divided by the amount of CPU Cores that your server has, to give a more accurate representation of what has been used.
  • % MEM – This is the daily average percentage of Physical Memory (RAM) that has been used by the user on Average.
  • MySQL Processes – The average MySQL Processes that have been used for this user daily.

Top Processes List

The next chart further down the page will show the Top Processes that have been run on the server. This is particularly helpful in seeing what in particular has caused the highest Resource usage on the server in the last day.
