[Plugin: WP-Crontrol] Understanding WP-Control (3 posts)

    First off thanks for making this plugin available. I came across it
    because my shared host recently has been shutting down my site because
    I'm overloading their servers' CPU. After investigating I found that
    it was my wordpress wp-cron that was causing this chaos.
    I'm hoping you can help shed some light on your plugin and how it
    interacts with the wp-cron.php file.
    I've loaded your plugin, have it working but just want to make sure I
    understand a few things first.

    1. If the wp-cron gets loaded every time someone hits my site, and
    say I get 2 hits within 1 minute of each other, wouldn't the set
    intervals (see attachment) run kind of over-laping each other?
    2. If this is not the case, what would be a good interval to set
    based on my attached screenshot?

    If you could help that would be great.
    My host has shut my site down 3 times in the past week, and I'm
    getting a bit frustrated.

    I wrote this for the very same situation I was experiencing with some of my other clients. Hopefully you'll find this helpful:

    I've got a similar situation where wp-cron is out of control. I'm using multisite, and so a simple real cron job like you suggest won't help. Any other ideas? With the WP-Control plugin help me tame it?
