How to check server status and information in WHM

Checking your server status and information in WHM

Let's take a look at the server status section of WHM and the two options: Server Information and Service Status.

Click the Service Status link.

Now click the Server Information link.

Here you will find a list of services running in your server and their status whether the services are up or whether they're failing.

From the check marks, we see that the services here are all up and running fine.

If you see Red Stop box (failing) or Yellow box (about to fail), then more investigation would be needed to find out why and how to get the services back up and running.

One of the more important item in this list is the server load. It is good indication of how hard the server is being run. If the load gets much above 1.00 multiplied by the number of CPU cores in your server, the server may be overloaded and you should address this with your server administration.

Here at the bottom of the list of services, is a list of your hard drive partitions and how much storage space is being used by each. It is typically the /home directory where all the hosting account files are located, so your should ensure there's lots of space available here.

On the server information page, you can see the complete details of your server.

In this case, the server has 2 processors each running with 16MB cache since its a VPS.

The server has 3.8 GB of RAM.

This demo assumes you've already logged in to WebHost Manager.

It has one hard drive named vda1, which is a 60GB drive.

You can see a breakdown of how the 3.8GB of RAM is being used here.

Finally, a detailed breakdown of the hard drive partitions is shown here at the bottom of the page.

This is the end of the tutorial. If you ever have problems with the service you get from your server, you should return to the server status section to see where the problems may be occuring.
