CloudLinux Statistics — Now in Production

CloudLinux Statistics — Now in Production

Today, we are releasing LVE Manager, lve-stats, lve-utils, and alt-python27-cllib packages to Production. As well as bug fixes (see changelog below) and additional improvements to the product, we’re adding a major feature announced earlier — CloudLinux Statistics.

We respect all laws and regulations, so, statistics collection does not fall under the GDPR. Please see our EULAs, website Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
You can find a complete list of metrics collected by CloudLinux here. We’d love to know what you think about it — you can send any feedback regarding CloudLinux Statistics or the GDPR to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

These statistics are the first step towards the CloudLinux Dashboard, a new feature coming soon. In the CloudLinux Dashboard, we will combine all statistics into one useful and effective dashboard, to simplify and facilitate administrators’ life, because “Who owns the information, rules the world”. Indeed!

If you do not want to share data at all, you as an administrator can deactivate the collection of CloudLinux usage statistics. Please find detailed opt-out instructions here.

To update, run the following command in a console:

yum update lvemanager lve-utils lve-stats alt-python27-cllib

Hi Morris,

For now, statistics are for internal CloudLinux usage. When we release CloudLinux Dashboard it will be available for customers as part of CloudLinux Dashboard.

Any eta for CloudLinux Dashboard ?
I have added cl_statistics_enabled=0 now, but that can just be removed when dashboard is released and stats will start working from that day?

After this update I'm seeing the following when checking for outdated processes:

[email protected] [~]# /usr/bin/needs-restarting
2302579 : /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.8.0/bin/java-server-(...huge string of parameters here...)


Any idea on how to restart that service?

Nevermind. I solved that by running the following:

service cpanel-dovecot-solr restart

The above mentioned java process is a part of that service.
