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.
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 green lights shown, we see that the services here are all up and running fine.
If the lights were red (failing) or yellow (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 items in this list is the server load. It is a nice sign of how difficult it is to operate the server. If the load is much higher than 1.00 multiplied by your server’s amount of CPU cores. The server can be overloaded and your severe administration should solve this.
Here is a list of your hard drive partitions at the bottom of the service list and how much storage space each uses. It is typically the /home directory where all the hosting account files are located. So you should ensure there’s lots of space available here.
Now click server information.
On the server information page, you can see the complete details of your server.
In this case, the server has an Intel Xeon Processor with two cores, each running at 3.00GHz with a 6 MB cache.
It has one hard drive named sda, which is a 500GB drive.
The server has 4GB of RAM.
You can see a breakdown of how the 4GB 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 check things out.
