    Couldn't you do this with the Cloudways API and WP-CLI.

    Would be great for those of us who are already using a backup solution (in my case BackupBuddy for full off-site backups and WP time capsule for continuous backups) to not be forced into paying for Cloudways to do additional backups.

    goaccess.io is another good web-log analyzer. Implementing this would give an idea of which apps where consuming the most resources, which is another requested feature -- http://feedback.cloudways.com/forums/203824-service-improvement/suggestions/15302208-monthly-bandwidth-on-per-app-basis

    For anyone who comes here, this appears to be possible using the Cloudways API. Here is some documentation from CloudWays on how to create a script in PHP that accomplishes this. Their script could be triggered through a cron job, URL, SSH, or what have you. https://www.cloudways.com/blog/automatically-purging-varnish-cache-using-cloudways-api/

    There is a nifty little trick with static apps that can speed WordPress websites up a little. It involves
    a special type of static app that uses a symlink to point a website subfolder to this static app. When I was hosting with Webfaction, they would allow me to do this.

    The idea is that you can then make the uploads folder of WordPress (/wp-content/uploads) a symlink to a static app. The WordPress uploads folder only has static resources like images and PDF documents, making it a perfect use-case for a static app. I know I would appreciate the performance gains from the reduced overhead in serving these static resources. Also, I don't know if this applies, but if the default configuration gzips images, that would harmful for performance as well -- jpegs and pngs are already compressed, so gzipping them is only wasting computing power and time.

    If it's useful, you can find the documentation Webfaction created for speeding up requests to the uploads folder by using this technique on their platform at https://docs.webfaction.com/software/wordpress/advanced.html

    TL;DR
    A symlink that places a website's images folder in a static app would increase performance.
