    I can't be 100% sure it's this plugin's fault, but I don't have many visitors (<100/day) and I don't have other things that would be using CPU when there are no visitors.

    My cpanel at random times show 100% CPU or 1GB (100%) RAM used.
    It would randomly fix itself. Could it be the file checking of this thing? I always get file altered warnings and when I look at the log it says no files were altered.

    My experiences told me, these items may consume lots of your server resources (RAM and/or CPU load):
    - File Change Detection (under: menu > Security > Intrution Detection)
    - Enable Scheduled Backups (under: menu > Security > Database Backup)

    You may need to disable them.

    Definitely an issue of File Change Detection
    This needs to be turned off as a 'red' item in dashboard
    every time I update I have to init the plugin again. I check the 'red' item in dashboard and turn them on. My site dies.
