cPanel 11.24 VPS Optimized(?)

Yesterday I have got the mail from cPanel about some changes in cPanel. Though the changes were applied in CURRENT & EDGE tree, yesterday they entered into RELEASE tree. As I use RELEASE tree I have immediately updated the cPanel’s version. I have monitored the server almost whole day.

They claimed they have released the second version of VPS Optimized which saves 12-15MB RAM. But at what cost?

I am monitoring one of my VPSes from yesterday. Still I am observing that the server load is consistently more than double than before. So, did they save memory at cost of CPU? Usually my VPS’s load always (except special tasks like backup) remained under 1.0 and mostly below 0.6. But now it is always more than 1.5 and mostly 2.0+.

In VPS arena, RAM is easily upgradeable but not the CPU. Many company provides equal CPU share. So, when needed, we can upgrade the RAM but can’t upgrade the CPU share easily and cost effectively.

So, I am really frustrated with this version of cPanel.
