Support » Fixing WordPress » High RAM Usage and I/O Processes

    I am Running a website PokeWreck.com based on WordPress, but I think there is some issue with the website. The normal RAM usage of the server is around 300mb but if a single user uses the search function on my website the RAM usage goes above 500mb and I/O usage goes full. Yesterday I received a traffic of 50 users online and the website went down. Is it normal with all the WordPress websites or there is any bug in my installation. Do I need to upgrade my server?

    When a user searches or 30-40 users online: https://i.imgur.com/hSOtJkK.png

  • That seems rather high for that many users. What plugins/themes are you using?

    1) What version of PHP is that server running?
    2) Is the database memory the same as the webserver memory? Reason I ask is a common technique in web hosting is for these to be separated.
    3) When did this start happening?

    It started happening when I migrated VPS hosting to shared

    Its pretty much the difference between VPS and shared. Most VPS or especially WordPress optimsed hosting have isolated server resources and preconfigured multi-caching.

    Even i am using Cloudflare. and currently i had changed my theme to normal, but still issue is there. i think it’s something with wordpress files.

    The P3 Plugin is also not working. it is not showing not plugins usage

    Some of those plugins are CPU heavy.
    – Check out wp-optimize plugin and wp-disable plugin
