My hosting provider states multisite causes high CPU usage
I am quite curious to know your comments on the above sentences from a “Level III Tech Support Engineer” of a well known hosting provider.
Beyond just the plugins, it seems that you have a single WordPress install utilizing MU to serve all of your various sites. From a performance perspective this is less than ideal and will necessitate a raise in CPU required for each page hit while the server determines which set of WordPress data it is supposed to be working from in the Database layer rather than all the way up at the HTTP request layer where there is nearly no performance cost. Separating these sites out into their own addon domains with their own distinct content would remove this overhead and likely result in another considerable decrease in CPU usage.
