My website receives 20k+ uniques per day and after installing the wordpress popular post last night, just a moment ago my server crashed and my host reported that it is because the admin-ajax.php causing severe load on my server and it was the plugin accessing it everytime.
My suggestion is, can you make the updates hourly? I mean like the views will be stored in a variable then after an hour it will access the admin-ajax.php to update the views. In that case, it will not cause server restrain because admin-ajax.php will only be accessed 24 times per day.
