Server Backup Taking Longer



  • kgs

    I'm only seeing this with regard to load: "Load watching suspended due to SIGUSR1", "Load watching resumed due to SIGUSR2".

    My new VPS is in the same data center as my old one, so I don't know why transfer speed would be different.

    Anyway, looks like just another mystery that will go unsolved. Thanks!

    Hey there!  It depends on where the slowness is.  Can you check the logs and see if the backups are being paused due to server load?  You would see entries like this in the backup log in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/ if that were the case:

    cpuwatch (Sun Mar  3 02:10:55 2024): System load is currently 1.86; waiting for it to go down below 1.75 to continue …

    If it is that, you can adjust the server settings as outlined here:

    If it's related to the data transfer speed to the remote destination, there isn't much you can adjust on the server side.
