Performance Issues

Hi All,

Recently we have been experiencing periodic performance issues such as long page loads. This is only during peek hours of 140+ concurrent users and does not occur all the time. When issuing a top command on the server, I notice some httpd processes taking ~20% CPU. Is this normal for an Elgg instance? It could potentially be a plug-in causing this, I just wanted to reach out to the community and see if anyone else has experienced this.

Quick overview on our implementation:

Elgg 1.8.16

Web Server

Os: Linux/SUSE

CPUs: 4

Memory: 4Gb

Apache: MPM Prefork

Database Server

Same as web server


Could this perhaps be a hardware issue?

Thanks Elgg Community.
