Excessive Resource User Policy: Resources are defined as disk space, bandwidth, and/or computing resources (cpu, memory, disk i/o) utilization. Alva Computers offers a shared hosting service in which environment customers may share resources with other customers, therefore it is imperative that Alva Computers control any excessive usage by customers so that they do not disrupt the service quality of other customers using the same resources. A hosting account is considered using “Excessive amounts of resources” when it consumes 100% of 1 CPU core, and/or 1 GB Memory and/or 20 concurrent connections also known as “Computing Resources”, and/or “Resources”, and/or “Resource Usage”. There are numerous issues that could cause such problems, including but not limited to: cgi scripts, FTP, HTTP, etc. To prevent service disruption for other customers, a hosting account which exceeds the included computing resources will be slowed down automatically for as long as the resources are being overused. Alva Computers will make every reasonable effort to notify customer prior to suspension, however, Alva Computers may suspend any offending hosting account prior to notifying the customer of the account in the event that service disruption to other customers was/is caused. The customer whom is using “excessive resources” may be asked to upgrade his/her package to a more suitable hosting package, such as but not limited to a premium account, virtual private server or dedicated server. Alva Computers will be the sole and final arbitrator as to what constitutes as a violation of this policy. Customers have access to their Resource Usage within their control panel.
