IonSwitch monitors the VPS products named in the summary of this policy for their CPU usage on a one-minute interval.  These values are reviewed by an automated process, and may result in progmatic throttling of resources based on the product and CPU usage.  The effective throttling will be to the allocated product expected resource usage.

If any product exceeds its dedicated cores resource for more than an hour, it will be throttled to its expected resource usage limit for up to 6 hours.
