Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Heavy usage of hosting resources

  • Hi

    We have our wordpress site http://dlharbour.ie (using Events Calendar Pro) hosted with media temple. Over the last couple of months our hosting GPU usage has gone way over our monthly allocation, so we have been looking into why this is happening (as its costing way too mush in extra charges!).

    The biggest offender by far is the homepage of http://dlharbour.ie which accounts for 50%+ of bandwidth.

    We just ran a SSH command to show us a list of plugins that were hitting the home page and by how much.

    dlharbour.ie/html$ strace php5 index.php 2>&1 | perl -ne ‘if (/plugins\/([\w\d-_]*)/ ) { print “$1\n” }’ | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

    Here is the list of the top plugins:

    11087 the-events-calendar
    3556 nextgen-gallery
    742 contact-form-7
    741 wp-optimize

    As you can see, The events calendar is almost using quadruple the resources of the second plugin in the list!

    Can you help me to reduce this as all we are doing is displaying a couple long term events on the homepage?

    Thanks

    Paul
