[Plugin: W3 Total Cache] CPU usage? (3 posts)

    Like many wordpress users on a shared hosting environment, one day you hit a high CPU usage.

    I'd like to understand if minify causes much higher CPU usage? I am OK to use more bandwidth, if I can reduce CPU a bit.

    By design W3TC will reduce CPU usage. The one time expense of creating cache files is no greater than the expense to generate or send those objects for every request of the same.
