Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » Updraft plus polling admin-ajax (heartbeat)

  • Resolved mediablox


    Hi There,

    We were experiencing a slow wp-admin and also a big load on our server. 1 thing we noticed was that Updraftplus is polling the heartbeat api for “activejobs_list”. This happens every x seconds and causes extra load on our server. Why is Updraft doing this? Is this really neccessary? It’s doing it on every page in wp-admin. We really like the functionality of the plugin but for now we disabled the plugin because of this.

    Would it be possible to disable this? Or is this a bug maybe?

    please let us know.
    Thanks in advance.

    It only does this if you have the UpdraftPlus admin page open, and the ‘Status’ tab showing, to check on backup progress. So, if it is undesirable, close the admin page, or navigate to a different tab.
