I have a magento 2.1.5 EE website. There are around 5000 visitors a day. Below are the server Specifications:
- Intel Xeon E3-1270 CPU
- 3.50Ghz CPU Clock Speed
- 4 CPU Cores
- 8 CPU Threads
- 8MB CPU Cache
- 16GB DDR3 RAM
- 1TB SATA II HDD
- 5TB Bandwidth
I am facing a problem recently. I installed an extension ,after two days I disabled it and then I enabled it after 1 day. After enabling the extension, I run the setup:upgrade command. The command takes a lot of time which is unusual and the Server load reaches 30.
I tried to figure out the problem:
- Disabled the cron jobs
- Uninstalled the above extension
- run the setup upgrade and the di:compile and the deploy commmands
- Cleared the cache
The Server load is increasing quickly to reach 30 for a little time then it decreases back to 1-2. This is happening multiple times a day.
I contacted the hosting company, they said that the resources usage is not related to the traffic I am getting, but rather to the number of executions my website scripts are making.
I wonder how can I solve this issue?
Any help is appreciated.
