Schedule Configuration

For WHM version 11.40

Set the log and bandwidth processing frequency

You can use the features in this information box to determine how often WHM will process the statistics on your server.

If you wish to redefine how often WHM will process logs for your server, enter the appropriate number of hours in the Log Processing Frequency text box and click Change.

If you wish to redefine how often WHM will process bandwidth statistics for your server, enter the appropriate number of hours in the Bandwidth Processing Frequency text box and click Change.

note Note: You must set the intervals in increments of 0.25 (which represents 15 minutes). For example, you could enter:

  • 4 — for every 4 hours
  • 4.25 — for every 4 hours, 15 minutes
  • 4.5 — for every 4 hours, half hour
  • 4.75 — for every 4 hours, 45 minutes

To define a more precise schedule, click the Configure Statistic Process Time Schedule button under the Statistics Schedule heading.

Statistics Processing Times

You are free to define a more precise schedule by clicking Configure Statistic Process Time Schedule under Statistics Schedule. Here, as seen in the screenshot below, you are able to use checkboxes to select hours that log analysis will not be performed. Remember to click Save to store the changes to the server. You should make sure to only process statistics during off-peak hours, when your server is less busy processing requests.

note Note: If your server is very busy, logs may take longer than an hour to be fully analyzed. Make sure you allow sufficient time for log analysis by leaving an adequate number of hours unchecked.

note Note: The times selected in the Statistics Processing Times table only affect the statistics programs (Analog, AWStats, Webalizer and Logaholic). This schedule does not control the internal processing of bandwidth statistics performed by cpanellogd, which is necessary for bandwidth reports in cPanel & WHM. cpanellogd may still process during blackout hours, using minimal resources. The frequency of cpanellogd processing is also controlled through the Bandwidth Processing Frequency section.

Additional Options

You are also free to prevent backups and log processing from running simultaneously. Because both backups and log processing are resource-intensive tasks, preventing them from occurring simultaneously will aid in maintaining fast cPanel and website load times. Simply click the available checkbox under Additional Options, then click Save.
