Am using Hypervm,my all vms are not using more than 512 MB memory but when i click on server as localhost the there is show maximum memory usage I have total 8 GB it always show 5-6 GB usage and never drop down, How can I fix this matters?
I purchased a VPS at wiredtree to upload a site that is in the works so that it would be "ready" once it was launched (had it sitting on a shared server before). So I have this domain on there, as well as a small wordpress blog. In total I'm get a very miniscule trickle of visitors to these websites (as they are not officially launched), around 100 visits per day, many of which are only 1 pageview visits.
My problem is, my server is already idling over its memory limit of 256mb. This is causing major slowdowns, and processes like cpanel are constantly be killed and I can't login.
Does anyone have any idea what is causing my high memory usage? I just can't image that the visitors I am getting are doing much, as for the majority of the day I have absolutely no one viewing my domains, yet my memory usage is still over the limit.
Wiredtree support says its up to me to optimize my msql/php scripts etc for low mem usage, but I don't see how this will help when there is no one using them in the first place.
I have a linux server that is only hosting one site , and although the httpd and mysql are working well , then the server load is high and when I restart the server the server load is high till the swap accelerates to 100% and then it uses the memory alot.
I currently have 2 VPSs that I'm monitoring and I noticed that on one of them the memory usage is much higher than the other which doesn't make sense to me. I tracked the high memory usage to the Apache processes.
Here's the overview of the VPSs:
LiquidWeb VPS- 512MB RAM, 10 Sites with minimal usage. Average httpd process (Owner Priority Cpu% Mem% Command): nobody 0 0.0 1.2 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
Virpus VPS- 384MB RAM, 61 sites with moderate usage. Average httpd process (Owner Priority Cpu% Mem% Command): nobody 0 0.0 0.3 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL
Both Apache configurations are identical, the only difference besides the hardware is that LiquidWeb runs CentOS4.7 and Virpus runs CentOS5.2, any ideas? It's not to big of a deal since I'm not near my limit for either of them but I was just curious.
I'm running a single Magento website with only around 150 products, and very low traffic, on a VPS with 2 Cores and 4GB of ram. However I am getting constant warning emails about high Apache Memory usage and High CPU usage.
The server and site were working fine, however since the server failed (Power cut on upgrade at the hosts end) and we rebuilt the website I'm getting these warnings, my host said it is just the website and the server needed upgrading... to which I did (server was a 1 core 2GB ram server). However since I've upgraded I'm still getting these warning emails.
I'm really new to VPS's and plesk so I'm wondering what I can do to try and track down what is causing these high usage as I'm 100% certain the site was fine before. The server has default build both before and after the fail.
In the last day or two I've been having issues with memory on one of by boxes.
Something eats it all up, so the OS starts swapping, the I/O wait shoots up, and soon the load is up in the hundreds and the thing is totally useless.
During the day today I've tracked the something to occational apache processes. It seems that occationally a thread is started which uses upwards of 150M of memory. These threads are obvioudly doing something heavyweight and take a while to complete. When I get a few of them running together it soons finishes off all my available memory. Below is an extract from top when a couple of these threads are running.
Code: PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 10230 nobody 25 0 197m 27m 9392 R 45.5 2.9 0:03.27 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -DSSL 10231 nobody 25 0 197m 25m 8376 R 52.8 2.7 0:01.60 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -DSSL I was wondering if anyone could help out by suggesting some ways of tracking down what page/script it which uses so much memory. It's a cPanel server so it's not really practical to tail -f the apache logs (not knowing which account it is means I don't know which file to watch).
Running programs named Perl with Heavy CPU usage, with the ownership of user apache.
We found the problem on Fedora 3 and Fedora 6.
In our case, it was the result of a Trojan activity.
Check the cron jobs of user apache crontab -u apache -e */1 * * * * perl /tmp/.tmp/tmpfile delete the cronjob entry. Also delete the file /tmp/.tmp/tmpfile also added "apache" to the file /etc/cron.deny
from about 3-4 days, the cpu of my server, from an average of 0-15% load, grew up to a constant 80-90-100% cpu load.
There were two processes called php-cgi.exe IWAM_PLESK(default) that, each one, constantly burned 30-40% of cpu load.
So, stopping websites one by one, I found the website that was the cause of the cpu overload.
On my "old" windows vps, there were processes called with the name of the website hosted (for example websitename_web.exe), so it was easy to immediately find exactly what website was involved in the hypotetical cpu or ram overload issue.
I have a site that is eating up my server resources and need to know what the best solution for this is. I'm thinking of getting another server just for mysql but do not know what specs the server should be to handle the current traffic/database load and have the site run smoothly without slowing down to a snail's pace.
An alternative is to get another server just for the videos being served and leave the database and html on the current server. This is where I'm stuck and don't know what route to take with this.
I've attached screenshots of top and bandwidth usage per day. Hopefully with this information you could tell me if I need another server or if there are any things I can do to the current server to help things move faster.
The output above is grathered when almost no other services are running except sshd.
While XEN VPS surely consumes more memory than OVZ VPS, I would suggest the Xen VPS can be built in such a way less memory is required to just do the housekeeping.
Of course, that would imply careful provisioning, maybe less "overselling" for the sake of lack of a term. The bottom line is how we can reduce the memory usage, while ensure individual VPS instance can still have fair share of CPU if needed.
Is there anyway in the VPS kernel config which can disable access to certain CPU core, thus reducing the number of kthreads and etc?
how much adding php to apache will increase memory usage on a VPS? This would be php5.
I need it to use phpMyAdmin to manage my MySQL database (actual site is running off tomcat but jspmyadmin won't work for some reason).
Or can someone recommend a database design tool (I've used toad data modeler before) which I can use on my home pc to generate SQL statements for execution on the server (and please don't say notepad).
I was just wondering about DA memory load. Like CPANEL load around 300mb and LXADMIN about 20mb. I was going to get VPS with 256 only to host 40-50 church sites with just static html, not dynamic or anything. Greatly appreciated with your input. I'm still learning all of this
