I am a web designer and had CL installed on my server along with CageFS a few weeks ago. The server contains about 100 small low-traffic web sites, plus 5-10 larger, busy ones. Clients don't want or have access to Cpanel. Most sites are Wordpress.

The primary reason was (a) for server security and (b) to create a fairer system to prevent the busy sites hogging server resources to detriment of smaller ones.

I haven't changed any of the default settings below 

CPU usage (SPEED) 100
Virtual Memory (vMEM) 1024  
Physical memory (pMEM) 1024
Concurrent connections (EP) 20
Number of processes (nPROC) 100
I/O limit (IO) 1024
Number of inodes (soft|hard) 0 0

I have received several notifications re "Hosting account resources exceeded" for the busy sites but, tbh, I don't really know what of these to change, or what levels to change to. Checking stats, about 10 of the larger sites have hit all max levels about once each day (maybe that's acceptable?) 

If appropriate, I was thinking of having two levels of settings, one for small sites and one for large sites. Can anyone give me any guidance what settings to use for the busier sites? 

My server is a Quad Core 3.10GHz (8MB Cache) with 8.0GB DDR3 1333MHz Memory.
