Which is more resource intensive? Cpanel or Hsphere?

Post by volomike »

My client is trying to evaluate Cpanel and Hsphere on Linux reseller hosting. We need to reduce resource load on the server. Which of these have you found to be lesser on resource utilization for CPU, RAM, and disk space (including DB size)?

This thread is old, but it deserves a response anyway.

You'll find that most Virtual Host Management tools actually use minimal resources, the real problems come from the the sub-systems, perhaps the 2 most resource intensive are Analytic's (i.e. webalizer etc) and Backups (Dumping databases).

If your experiencing high server loads, then HSphere might be your best option as it can be clustered (CPanel can only be run with all services on the same server). Before investing in a new Host Management tool, I would recommend trying to disable or move the most demanding services and disable the non essential.
