How do I access my server resource graphs?

Cloud VPS and Cloud Dedicated clients have a new analytics tool for understanding how their sites are using server resources: ServInt’s server resource usage graphs.

Cloud VPS and Cloud Dedicated clients have access to nine different graphs in their Portal:

  • All resources
  • CPU cores
  • RAM
  • IOPS
  • Disk space
  • Disk inodes
  • Network traffic
  • Network packets
  • Unix load average

Traditional VPS and dedicated clients have access to:

  • Disk Space
  • Disk Inodes
  • Network Traffic

To access the graphs 

  1. Navigate to the Products section of your customer portal.
  2. Choose Manage for the server you are interested in tracking.
  3. Select Resource Graphs from the drop-down menu.

Here are descriptions of all the resource graphs.

Each Daily graph will automatically refresh after 30 seconds and shows 5 minute averages. Each graph has a tooltip in the bottom right corner for simple reference.

  • All Resources: Shows the percentage of resource usage for CPU Used, Total RAM Used, Active RAM Used, IOPS Used, Disk Space Used, and Disk Inodes Used.
  • CPU Cores: Breaks down CPU Core usage into three categories: Cores Allocated, Cores Used and Cores Guaranteed. Cores Guaranteed will be a straight line across the graph indicating the number of guaranteed cores allocated. Cores Allocated indicates how many cores are allocated to the server at any given time and should always be at or above Cores Guaranteed. Cores Used will be the number of cores currently being used.
  • RAM: Breaks down RAM usage into four categories: RAM Allocated, Active RAM Used, Cache RAM Used, and Total RAM used. RAM Allocated is the amount of RAM that is allocated to that server, based on the package. Active RAM Used is the amount of RAM currently being used. Cache RAM Used is the amount of data that is currently cached in RAM. Cache RAM Used and Active RAM Used add up to Total RAM Used, which should ideally be very close to Total RAM Used.
  • IOPS: Breaks down IOPS usage into two categories: IOPS Allocated and IOPS Used. IOPS Allocated indicates the IOPS limit based on the package. IOPS Used is the IOPS usage; it should be below IOPS Allocated.
  • Disk Space: Breaks down disk space usage into two categories: Disk Allocated and Disk Used. Disk Allocated indicates the disk space limit based on the server package. Disk Used is the amount of disk space currently being using by the server, it should be below Disk Allocated.
  • Disk Inodes: Breaks down inode usage into two categories: Inodes Allocated and Inodes Used. Inodes Allocated indicates the inode limit based on the server package. Inode Used is the number of inodes being used; it should be below Inodes Allocated.
  • Network Traffic: Breaks down network traffic into two categories: Out and In. Out indicates network traffic going out from the server. In indicates network traffic going into the server.
  • Network Packets: Breaks down packet traffic into two categories: Out and In. Out indicates packets going out from the server. In indicates packets coming into the server.
  • Unix Load Average: Displays load averages in two categories: Load AVG – 5m, and Load AVG – 15m. Load AVG 5m shows the five minute load average for the server. Load AVG -15m shows the fifteen minute load average for the server.
