Memory Used on cpanel

Postby TaylorCTU » Mon Jul 10, 2017 4:31 pm

Scanned the site for malware. Clean. Any ideas on why memory used % would be so high? Comes back to normal with a server reboot, gradually increases.

Its almost impossible to tell whats causing high memory usage without ssh access or something of that sort. If you have root access to the server then login and use "top" command to see which processes are consuming memories.

No that is not the issue. This does not resolve by "killing old processes"

This is caused by an improper settings of the mySQL-settings on your server. A lot of good articles have been written on this matter by Peter Zaitsev and start reading https://www.percona.com/blog/author/admin/ or just Google for "memory usage mySQL" and have fun.......

Server Tuning is an ART and need a lot of knowledge of mySQL, Apache and others.

Well it's a temporary fix. I've been aware of some sort of mis-configuration for a while. This does buy some time for me to do some more research. Thanks for the link, I will definitely look into that.

There are many factors for this, as suggested one will need an SSH access to figure out it. Further, you can also check with the sysadmin if the web server and the database server is fine tuned.
