1. Entry Process

I'm not sure what that means -- please explain?
2. Virtual Memory

We don't impose a limit for virtual memory but you will need to add it yourself:

- Ubuntu
- CentOS
3. Number of Processes
The default value depends on the OS/kernel you're using but you can change it yourself. See
4. I/O Usage Limits

We do not limit I/O usage.
5. Max no of files

That depends on your filesystem. You can find out how many inodes are available, used, and free by running
df -i

Linux swaps allow a system to harness more memory than was originally physically available. Here's how to set up a linux swap file on Ubuntu 12.04
An "Entry Process" is how many scripts(PHP,JSP..Etc) you have running at a single time
No, we do not limit that. You get a virtual machine with full root access so you can change any limits that might exist.
