I don't get it either. Is this a new product? It just says that it will eventually make it out to the build tree.
Pete,It has been rolled out in the EDGE release of Cpanel as of about 2 weeks ago. I'm running EDGE on 2 of my servers and there is a significant memory usage reduction, at a rough guesstimate, I'd say about 10 - 15 % reduction.
I'm in the new LA datacentre and things are rocking along the best they ever have.
I automatically got it when I did a cpanel update (EDGE Tree). There are less resources used. I can't say that performance is any better, but only on the basis that the VPS was running great beforehand. I would presume that if performance of the VPS had been marginal due to memory issues, this update would certainly help.Pete,
So performance wise things are as they have been and yet it's using less resources?
The email I received said up to 60% less memory usage but hey, take it where you can get it!
So is the VPS version another option in updates or do you just automatically get it?
How are they marketing it?I fail to see how anyone--whether they have a VPS account or not--would fail to benefit from a less resource intensive cPanel. The marketing makes no sense, but here's hoping it delivers.
This is simply amazing but as I am sure everyone is wondering...what's the trade off? You don't get a reduction like that without sacrificing something!I tested out cPanel optimized on a test VPS and found that my RAM usage went down from ~240 Mb usage to just 60 Mb usage!
You do if your code is as un-audited as cPanel's tends to be.This is simply amazing but as I am sure everyone is wondering...what's the trade off? You don't get a reduction like that without sacrificing something!
LMAO gotta respect a guy that says it like it is. When it's not directed at me anywaysYou do if your code is as un-audited as cPanel's tends to be.
I suspect that the prevalence of VPS services has simply called more attention to the ridiculous amount of bloat in the current day cPanel package; customers of oversold shared hosting simply never saw all the ugliness lurking behind the curtain, so they never complained, and cPanel got away with murder for over a decade. Odds are good that "cPanel VPS Optimized" really means "embarrassment finally drove us to hire some competent engineers to refactor our awful legacy code."
