Hi, for the last year and a half I have had massive resource issues due to NGG. Through 3 web hosts and they have all pointed me to the same plugin - NGG.
I have over 100 galleries and probably more than 5000 photos total on my site.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled NGG fresh numerous times on several different WP installs from scratch and I get the same problems. Outages due to high CPU utilization and sucking up all the free memory I have available. I now have 1.4 gig of RAM on my VPS and when NGG is enabled it finds a way to eat up all available ram on occasion.
I have done malware scans, site is clean, timthumb vulnerabilities have been checked, and basically just by disabling NGG, my site has 100% uptime and zero resource issues. As far as I can tell I have no bots and there are no compromised files.
Has anyone had any success using NGG with lots of galleries and lots of images? I know various people have had CPU/memory/resource consumption issues with NGG.
Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
