Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Resource limits on hosting

  • mbeerli


    I had an earlier post.

    I found new evidence that wordfence is causing the issue with the scan.
    Godaddy shows the current usage and it shows every 3 days a memory issue.
    I limited wordfence with memory and disabled almost all scans and yet it is still a resource hog.

    – Let Wordfence choose when to scan my site (recommended)
    — reading on your website it is scheduled every 72 hrs
    – custom scan (enabled features)
    — Scan plugin files against repository versions for changes
    — Use low resource scanning (reduces server load by lengthening the scan duration)
    — How much memory should Wordfence request when scanning (50)

    and yet it shows about 200M of use every 3 days. I have also fastcache installed and maybe the touching of a file will cause a loading??
    There is something still strange going on every 3 days and it is caused by wordfence.

    Here the picture:

    Hi @mbeerli,
    Do you by any chance have a plugin called “Query Monitor” installed on the site? If so, does deactivating this plugin fix the issue?



    No, I do not have that one installed.
