CPU Usage Limited to 50% - CGroups Installed & Setup
« on: April 14, 2022, 05:01:28 AM »
Hi all,

When loading my site using Wordpress + WooCommerce, often I will see php-fpm using high resources - it'll often flog the CPU usage to 50%. Firstly, is this normal? I am using a caching plugin, which has helped now to reduce PHP load, though often I still see CPU usage stuck at 50% until the process is complete, sometimes taking up to 10-20 seconds before the processes finish.

For some reason, I can't seem to allow more CPU usage to help speed-up those processes. Is there a way I can allow my hosting account to use up to 80% CPU, rather than capping it at 50% CPU usage?

Since I'm the sole account under CWP, I can allocate more resources to the cPanel account.

Screenshot of CGroups:

The server is an 8 vCore server, so I presume by the CPU monitor capping out at 50%.

I have set the CPU percentage to 750% in CGroups for the account I want to allow 7+ cores, though the main CWPpro Performance monitor.

Am I setting something up incorrectly?
