Support » Plugin: Top 10 - Popular posts plugin for WordPress » Top 10 counter is slowing down my site

  • Sandal2013


    Hello Ajay,

    I have a few questions about Top 10. Hope you will answer them.

    1. In System Health services in WHM (Top) I have noticed that Top 10 counter very often use about 50% of CPU resources. How can I minimize using CPU resources but not disable great Top-10 plugin?

    2. What is the mean of “Enable Daily stats”. If I disable this option (uncheck) will Top 10 continue with counting every visit?

    Generally, what you advice me about using Top 10 counter?

    I am using Super cache plugin.

    Thanks in advance,

    Are you noticing a serious issue with the CPU load. Top 10 currently is heavy because it loads lite version of WordPress for adding each count.

    Disabling the daily option will help the load but no longer given you daily stats.

    I suggest disabling “always display latest post count” since it bypasses super cache which again increases load.



    Hello Ajay,

    Thank you for respond!

    Yes, I have noticed that very often Top 10 counter take more than 50% of recources. My site is running on solid VPS server, with 4GB RAM.

    Also, I have unchecked “Enable Daily stats” and Top 10 still dispay number of hits of every post?

    Thanks in advance!

    Top 10 will count and display the overall hits of every post but it will no longer count daily stats.
