HELP hosting resources are maxing out randomly. I have 0 visitors

I was wondering if I could get help in figuring out what is happening with my wordpress as I am getting resource issues when I am not directly working on my site. I also have 0 or nearly 0 visitors. Its not a surge in visitors.

I downloaded y hosting log where I can see the GET and POST request but I honestly dont know enough to understand. I am guessing that thre is a plugin or a setting that is causing this issue, but I do not know how to troubleshoot it because I can not replicate it at will.

So im looking for a bit of knowledge. So far google has not helped me in this regard. I found one interesting article Finding the Culprit of High CPU Usage in our WordPress Server but this method is focus on finding rogue php-requests, which I do not seem to have (no php-requests in my log).

I can see the times where my Resource usage spiked but like I mentioned. I was not using wordpress admin / nor working on the site at those most recent times.

I could disable one plugin at a time but I do have quiet a bit of plugins currently.

You can install the query monitor plugin to see what’s going on. Alternatively, if you have ssh access, you could run some command like htop.

Your site more likely suffers from what we call ‘bloat’.

Hello @jonnycg – thanks a lot for your question here.

As @random293 suggested, you can install query monitor plugin in order to check which plugin is slowing down your WP instance. But you’re running quite a lot of plugins, which slows down your wp hosting.

Thank you both for the suggestion. Before learning about query monitor, I decided to deactivate all the import/export related plugins as that accounted for a good ammount of plugins. I also was able to uninstal 2 or 3 plugins that were not needed any longer. Finally I installed the heartbeat plugin and it seems to have helped the situation. I am going now use the plugin suggested, it seem to be exactly what I was looking for, just did not think of the right words to find it. Thansk again both of you!

You’re welcome and thanks for sharing your experience with us.

Good luck and if you need anything else; our team is here to help you.
