CPU Usage Charts
These charts are a great indication of the loads being placed on your VPS, they can also help you to judge if it is time to upgrade your VM with a few extra nodes.

If you have enabled the backups option, you will receive 3 automatic backups (Daily, Weekly & Monthly) plus a “manual” backup.
Use this screen to create a snapshot backup of your VPS at any time, or to restore a backup.
Backups can be created while your system is running, however restoring a backup will require the system be shut down.
