High CPU usage + error log

Im hositng a site with this plugin on the following plan:

25GB High-Speed SSD Storage
Unlimited Premium Bandwidth

Unlimited MariaDB Databases
300% CPU Allowance
6GB Memory Allowance

Most of this allocation is sufficient, for example, the 6GB of memory is rarely needed, however the site uses alot of CPU.

At peak times when there are 500 or so visitors, the site often exceeds its CPU usage and crashes.

Just wondering if anything can be done to lower this.

Also the error log continuously reports the following errors - does this have anyhting to do with the high CPU usage?

Hi serum,

Thanks for your patience here while I was getting an answer from the developer for you. 

Here is what the developer said about the issue you reported:


The error logs from the forum post could be caused by any plugin. Since I don't remember seeing one of those errors in logs associated with AWPCP before, I believe we need the customer to confirm the errors stop showing up when the plugin is deactivated.

There is also not enough information to know what's causing the high CPU usage.

In order to understand what parts of WordPress are using the CPU and for how long, I would have to install profiling tools that I can't install on a customer server, so I don't think I can provide a solution for this particular case as part of a support request.


Sorry I don't have a better answer for you here. Please let me know if you have any other questions or issues!
