Advanced resellers may not use more than 2% CPU daily, 3% memory daily, run more than 16 simultaneous processes per user or allow any process to run for longer than 30 CPU seconds. Databases are limited to 16 max user connections with a max query time of 8 seconds.
I have a forum and CMS, just wondering is the advanced plan is ok? I am worried about the above policy.
you know, i asked site5 about their database resource policy.. which is similar.. 15 connections, 2000 (!) queries per hour-- seeing how most cms and forums packages can average 10-25 queries for EACH page view (my light-weight php/mysql cms averages a mere 12, but that'd still be well under 200 page views per hour), i thought that the 2000 query limit was a little off-base.... they said that cms's and forums are no big deal and are not a problem (even a "heavy duty" one like typo3).. but i suspect a heavily trafficed forum might raise an eyebrow or two, though.
simultaneous connections are probably a lesser concern, because queries are generally pretty fast on a cms for regular browsing.. on a low-to-moderate site the chance of enough people hitting a page view at *exactly* the same time to generate "excessive" simultaneous mysql connections is probably minimal at best.
