No, we do not limit that. You get a virtual machine with full root access so you can change any limits that might exist.

An “Entry Process” is how many scripts(PHP,JSP…Etc) you have running at a single time

<blockquote>1. Entry Process </blockquote> <br>I’m not sure what that means – please explain? <br><blockquote>2. Virtual Memory </blockquote> <br>We don’t impose a limit for virtual memory but you will need to add it yourself: <br> <br>- <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-add-swap-on-ubuntu-12-04”>Ubuntu</a> <br>- <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-add-swap-on-centos-6”>CentOS</a> <br><blockquote>3. Number of Processes</blockquote>The default value depends on the OS/kernel you’re using but you can change it yourself. See <a href=“http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9361816/maximum-number-of-processes-in-linux”>http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9361816/maximum-number-of-processes-in-linux</a>. <br><blockquote>4. I/O Usage Limits </blockquote> <br>We do not limit I/O usage. <br><blockquote>5. Max no of files</blockquote> <br>That depends on your filesystem.
