Hello,

I have used Cloudlinux on Cpanel servers for over 10 years and its very useful for controlling resource usage in shared hosting environments. kindly have Spanel support Cloudlinux.

Are the CPU/RAM/IO restrictions the only features you require or there is more to it? I'm asking because those features are now part of the OS and you don't need to pay for something that is supported for free by your operating system.

Thank you Vlad for your response. Rate limiting of resources to avoid spikes on shared servers is what am looking at. Apart from what you've highlighted, the other resources that should be limited are; 

  • Inodes.
  • processes

Inodes restrictions are already supported in SPanel. Are there any other features in Cloudlinux that you are actively using?

The only feature that you haven't addressed yet we actively limit using CLN is php processes

Limiting the number of PHP processes is pretty easy to achieve. I'll add it to our plans. Anything else missed?

Nothing more. That's all I had.

Cloud Linux also provide better more secure and lite weight version of php and extensions compare to cPanel fpm php. I am not sure how is it compared with SPanel.

Apart from resource limiting in CloudLinux LVE, another reason we use CloudLinux is CageFS.

CageFS is a virtualized file system and a set of tools to contain each user in its own 'cage'. Each customer will have its own fully functional CageFS, with all the system files. The benefits of CageFS include; Only safe binaries available to user, user will not see any other users, and would have no way to detect presence of other users & their user names on the server, user will not be able to see server configuration files, such as Apache config files, user's will have limited view of /proc file system, and will not be able to see other users' processes

It was important to limit resources - memory, CPU, IO - when creating the hosting packages, in order to avoid having to install cloudlinux.

@Vlad, Costa has put it the best way possible. Have it implemented on the packages.

@Vlad, I fully support Joao Costa.

@Vlad consider supporting cloudlinux for easy memory limits in shared environment.
