We are getting the same entry repeated multiple times in Changed Files logs. It looks like this log gets written once per day. Some days there is just one log entry but other days the same entry gets written multiple times. For example looking at entries for last few days:
2012-12-29: 1 entry at 20:43:21
2012-12-28: 6 entries at 20:41:44, 1 entry at 20:41:51 and 1 at 20:41:53 - all entries are the same
2012-12-27: 1 entry at 20:14:03
2012-12-26: 1 entry at 20:13:29 and 1 entry at 20:13:36 - both the same
2012-12-25: 1 entry at 20:09:50
2012-12-24: 1 entry at 20:07:30
2012-12-23: 2 entries 20:06:02
2012-12-22: 1 entry at 20:01:47 and 1 at 20:01:50
2012-12-21: 1 entry at 20:00:10
2012-12-20: 3 entries at 19:57:44, 1 at 19:57:47 and 1 at 19:57:48 - all the same
2012-12-19: 3 entries at 19:28:16 and 9 entries at 19:28:17 - all the same
What could be causing these multiple entries?
We've experienced our server become unresponsive on a number of occasions around the time of the log entries. Is this process intensive on server resources?
What other features of the plugin are intensive on server resources? (we want to disable anything that's intensive on resources so that we can see if this solves our problem with intermittent server lockups (9 times in last 6 weeks) that we've been having.
What accounts for the difference in the time that the log entry gets logged each day? Is it that the scan takes place at the same time and takes a variable amount of time?
Is there a way to schedule it for a different time (e.g. in the middle of the night when website is not busy)?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on my questions.
