we are running the discourse docker installation on a digitalOcean 1GB instance. Everything way fine but something changes on December (around) 20th. From then on the disk writes (and hence the CPU consumptions) increased tremendously (see graph).
Could that be explained with changes in the Software? We always applies updates as they became available but unfortunately i didn’t find any history which updates have been applied when. What kind of logging, meta, support-data would you need to help nailing this problem down?
What i’ve double checked already:
- normal amount of new users (20) per day
- normal amount of posts (100-300) per day
Next i will ask digitialOcean if that behaviour could also be explained with different/broken hardware.
Appreciate any help, Thomas E.-E.
