Here is the e-mail from and what transpired on that morning surge.

Good Day,

I regret to inform, that we can no longer continue sponsoring your account due to the following violations.

1.) Bandwidth usage = Suspension (Confirmed)- Your account had excessive bandwidth usage that peaked several gb’s early this morning (10/07/07).

2.) Resource usage = Termination (Confirmed) – as per section 2-4 of PagePH TOS, “To maintain the integrity of our service, traffic/usage limitations apply but is not limited to the following. 1) Sites with immense graphic archives or galleries (in GB’s). 2) Sites offering immense download archives, such as .zip, .tar, .ra and .GZ (in GB’s). 3) Sites running large chat room gatherings. 4) Sites using more than 20% of system resources.”. That said, used more than 80% of CPU resources of the whole nod; have caused instability to all of the accounts on the server.

Our manila server uses dual Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU, yet your account used nearly all available resources. This clearly indicates that your account is not suitable for a shared hosting environment, you will need to have a dedicated server to accommodate a domain with such amount of traffic.

The following was the CPU state during the said load;

total 92.0% 0.1% 6.9% 0.0% 0.0% 0.5% 0.3%
cpu00 91.8% 0.0% 7.1% 0.0% 0.0% 1.0% 0.0%
cpu01 91.3% 0.0% 8.6% 0.0% 0.0% 0.0% 0.0%
cpu02 94.2% 0.4% 4.8% 0.0% 0.0% 0.4% 0.0%
cpu03 90.7% 0.0% 7.2% 0.0% 0.0% 0.5% 1.5%
