How to check your Server Information on a VPS or Dedicated hosting account
When managing your server with InMotion Hosting, you can check your Server Information to find what type of server you have. This can be done in the Web Host Manager (WHM) of your VPS or Dedicated hosting server. The below steps will explain how to view your server Processor Information, System Information, Current Memory Usage, and Current Disk Usage to see what VPS plan you are on.
Important! You can only view this information on VPS or Dedicated servers. Shared servers have no WHM access.
Finding your server information in WHM
- Log into WHM.
- Navigate to Home > Server Status > Server Information.
- Scroll to the bottom to see the Memory and Disk space. The image below shows what the section looks like.
Current Memory Usage
The memory usage can be view in the Server information stats to see if it matches the plan you upgraded to. Below is an excerpt of the Current Memory Usage on a VPS1000. The total memory is burstable memory, in this case 1 gig for the VPS1000 plan. If it where a VPS3000 the number would be 3145728 kilobytes. The used is the total memory currently used by the server. The free memory is what the server has left to use.

Current Disk Usage
The below is an excerpt of a VPS server with a VPS1000 plan. The Size is the total disk space on the server. In this example, this is a VPS1000 plan because it has 40 gigs of space. If you upgraded to a VPS2000 you should see ~80gigs (The actual size will be a few gigs smaller in order to store server required information.). The Used is the total space used including all cPanel accounts and the server Operating Systems and systems files. The Avail is what's available on the disk and the Use% is the total used in percent.
