  • Plesk for Linux/Unix


CloudLinux with LVE is installed. During a new Plesk installation, two LVE configurations are added to the /etc/container/ve.cfg file:

cat /etc/container/ve.cfg
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
                <cpu limit="25"/>
                <ncpu limit="1"/>
                <io limit="0"/>
                <mem limit="131072"/>
                <other maxentryprocs="100"/>
                <pmem limit="131072"/>
                <nproc limit="0"/>
        <lve id="10000">
                <mem limit="262144"/>
                <pmem limit="262144"/>
        <lve id="3">
                <cpu limit="100"/>
                <ncpu limit="1"/>
                <io limit="0"/>
                <mem limit="0"/>
                <other maxentryprocs="0"/>
                <pmem limit="0"/>
                <nproc limit="0"/>

Why does Plesk add a particular configuration for lve=3 and lve=10000?


This configuration is changed after installing LVE Manager. Plesk does not manage LVE configuration directly. LVE Manager configures only /etc/container/ve.cfg that is provided by CloudLinux.

Additional info

LVE Manager is a plugin for the most popular control panels, including Plesk. It allows to control and monitor limits, set limits on per package basis.

LVE Manager is installed on the most CloudLinux servers, by default.

In case of any questions regarding /etc/container/ve.cfg configuration, kindly contact CloudLinux support. CloudLinux support.
