Support » Plugin: WP Server Health Stats » High CPU-Load on Epic Server

  • I decided to install this plugin due to its high star-rating.

    Unfortunately this plugin causes my server (dual code dedicated EPIC cpu, nginx) to go up from 2-3% load up to 25-45% on both cores. It is just this SINGLE plugin.

    Especially seen at night. I do not recommend this plugin to anyone.

    For information: the high cpu-load can be seen via linux “htop”-command. If you press F5, you can see, that it is the php7.x-fpm pool. I tried to deactivate all plugins and switched off all other websites for testing purposes. But a maintenance plugin, that is what you think very least about. Ironically, yes, the trouble is caused by a maintenance plugin. I also increased the refresh-rate to 2000ms, but this affects just little to cpu-load.

    Hi @fromks007,
    If you have increased the refresh rate to 2000 ms I don’t see how this will increase the CPU load as all this plugin does is running several Unix commands behind the scene to give you realtime data.

    Thank you for your response. I reinstalled the plugin, the high cpu-load is back.

    There seems to be a bug, causing a high cpu-load.

    Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS
    php-fpm (tested with 7.4 and 7.3)

    Hi @fromks007,
    I would love to look at it if you please open a support thread as we are not supposed to talk about issues in the review section. Anyways, try disabling shell_exec PHP function and see if that fixes the issue or not. Let me know.
