8 fabulous feature improvements in the works for CloudLinux OS

As always, our team is working diligently on enhancing CloudLinux OS, so we’ve decided to share with you a list of features we are paying special attention to for the remainder of 2016:

  • LVE Stats 2 - there is going to be a substantial improvement in a way we track usage. It should make it simple to track the cause of the issue. Now saving multiple snapshots of processes, queries - and soon URLs - right after the incident (customer hitting the limit) happened. It also features plugin infrastructure - to make it simple to customize it for your business needs. LVE Stats 2 is currently in beta, and we are working hard to make it stable.

  • mod_lsapi - released to production a few weeks ago and used by more than 10% of all CloudLinux servers. We will continue working on optimizing speed and performance of this module. Additionally, we are planning to ‘freeze’ inactive PHP processes instead of killing them. This should significantly improve 1st page response times while decreasing memory usage and improving overall density.

  • Reseller limits - latest kernels allow us to create two level of limits. This means at some point we should be able to let you set limits on a reseller account, and let reseller set limits on individual hosting accounts. We haven’t started working on that yet, but it is on our to-do list.

  • Simplified LVE Manager - we know it’s complex and doesn’t let you manage MySQL Governor, and CageFS is managed from another screen. We are reworking it with painful attention to details. It should become easy to configure every aspect of CloudLinux OS - and easy to see what is going on.

  • Improved Virtuozzo / OpenVZ support - now that two level limits are possible, we should be able to do CloudLinux inside Virtuozzo with CPU and Memory limits. We believe Virtuozzo has a lot of potential - and we want to see CloudLinux usage increased inside VZ containers.

  • Improved Plesk and DirectAdmin support - as a majority of our customers use cPanel, we focused primarily on cPanel support. Yet, as our company grew, we were able to set up a team dedicated to Plesk and DirectAdmin integration. We expect it to drastically improve the usability of CloudLinux when used with those control panels.

  • Bandwidth limits - should be in beta very soon - the ability to set outgoing limits, as well as account for incoming and outgoing bandwidth on per customer basis. While we don’t expect the majority of our customers to use it, in some locations it is ‘a must have’ due to high bandwidth pricing.

  • Improved Ruby/Python/NodeJS support - we see a lot of people using it, and we plan to continue improving our Ruby/Python Selectors and add NodeJS selector as well. While PHP is still the king, both JS and Python usage is growing fast.

Some other things we plan to experiment with this year:

  • Support for standard CentOS 3.10 or mainstream 4.x kernels
  • CloudLinux inside LXC containers
  • Ability to allocate ports per customer
  • HipHop for PHP (HHVM) support

We would also love to hear your feedback - if you have a few minutes please let us know by using CloudLinux UserVoice at
