It’s running on a Digital Ocean server - 4 GB Memory / 2 Intel vCPUs / 80 GB Disk
We have over 2000 members, and obviously not all of them are ever on at once. At random points in the day, we see the forums become sluggish and unresponsive, with CPU usage shooting up to 60% user side, and a huge jump in outbound bandwidth.
The forum displays the “some features have been disabled” message automatically, with comments taking up to a minute to save, and users even being logged out.
I’ve checked Google Adsense and analytics to check for issues or errors, and can see nothing that stands out. However, I’m admittedly not an expert - anyone have any bright ideas?
Thanks in advance!
I can’t seem to determine why - has anyone encountered an issue like this before?
