    @krumch What do you mean by “hits back to the site”? Where do you see that?

    @knuckle1 Does it slow your site’s back-end or front-end?

    I need more details as possible so I can investigate this issue.

    You see, generating an automatic markups takes a lot of queries to collect all the required data, this is not really free! I am trying to enhance the performance of the plugin as possible while providing new features. I did noted in some part of the plugin to not use extensive functions when you don’t need them (example: VideoObject and AudioObject) as this may slow or crash your site. (Not sure if you are enabling any of these features since I don’t know what settings you’ve configured or used in the plugin)

    Also, I am not sure if you are using any caching, it’s highly recommended to cache your site with a good caching plugin.

    I will do some testing for the plugin and try to see what’s going on, but if you have seen any errors, or can explain in more details what exactly is happening on your site, I would be thankful as this may help a lot in solving the issue.

    Ok, so after checking the plugin, I think I got an idea of what is happening, I will need to test on this more to solve the issue, so expect an update soon!

    I find that there was 20 threads (instances) of httpd process, all they do queries, continuously, repeatedly, almost 48 hours, all started from the site itself (find by IP), site stay on a dedicated server and have all the hardware resources available. No caching plugin on the site, latest WP, child theme of “2010”. No errors, just overload. If needs, I can provide access log. Hope that helps.

    Slows down both in backend and frontend. But much more on frontend i guess.

    Thank you, I am working on it.

    I have just spent hours with my server support…no sleep last night!

    While nobody seems to be able to confirm anything, right after updating this the pdf files stored in a separate directory but linked on the site started getting slammed. 30 gig of bandwith was used. They added more and hid the pdf folder and it seemed well. We moved it back and another 30G went bye-bye in barely a minute.

    After 80 gig of ‘internal’ bandwidth issues I rolled back to the previous previous version and so far all is well. “We are unsure about which plugin is actually causing the issue. This is the reason we mentioned you to revert any previous changes and to take a look at it.”

    So, I removed one called ‘simple history’ as they thought that might be it, but no luck. After reverting this plugin all seems well so it at least appears that this was the issue. For certain something cost me a night of sleep, several hours of server support and a charge or 2 for additional bandwidth. And several hours of downtime and several angry calls from a client.

    All that being said this seems like a cool plugin and so far I’ve gotten excellent support and responses here.

    Good luck on the update!

    Thanks Don,

    I can confirm that the plugin does several queries, which is actually more than it should, I am working on modifying its behaviour to reduce the number of queries.

    Ok, so I’ve just released an update, please look for version 1.5.9.7 and make sure to update the plugin on your site.

    What I did was to reduce queries made by the plugin by caching the JSON-LD output in post meta (deleted on daily bases), by this way the plugin won’t do extensive queries on every call, instead it will use the value if exists in post meta.

    I’ve tested this on one of my sites with 1000+ posts and it seems to be ok.

    Please, test the new update and let me know how it goes.

    No load over than usual one, thanks Hesham!

    You are welcome!

    I’ve done more enhancements to the plugin in the latest updates, it’s much faster now.
