WordPress Server Load (3 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I have wordpress 2.5 installed and have been using wordpress for 2 years now.

    (see screenshots for clarification)
    My server load was on average 20% CPU , 800mb ram and mysql did a 3-4 rate/sec. This when having the default permalink structure being /p?=xxx and having wp-super cache plugin installed and running on option 'half on' , meaning only the normal wp-cache is enabled (not the super cache one, becayuse of the permalink structure).

    Then I changed the permalink structure to fancy permalinks, existing out of the date + the title of the post. And wp-super cache on full option on, meaning wp caches on super mode.

    Result is that my cpu is now 60-80% being used my ram is about 700mb and the mysql is up to 12 rate/sec .

    I thought this was pretty weird, since my visitors amount has stayed the same. And since i thought the super cache option would reduce the server load.

    So my questions are :
    Is this caused by the permalinks structure?
    Is it worth, SEO wise, having the fancy permalink structure enabled?
    Should I upgrade my cpu ? (since the global delay is averaging now about 2.00 before it was only averaging 0.40)

    (first part is before the permalinks structure being changed)

    >> Is this caused by the permalinks structure?
    Possibly. Having pretty permalink definitely puts more (albeit not very much in most cases) loads on the server. It's a good idea to optimize your theme code and the plugins that your site's using.

    >> Is it worth, SEO wise, having the fancy permalink structure enabled?
    SEO depends on many factors so it might actually hurt your site. However, generally speaking, yes, it helps.
