High CPU usage and how to fix it?
« on: February 04, 2010, 01:22:22 PM »
I need help from some of the more experienced users.

I run a "max 70-80-users-online-at-the-same-time" forum I was forced to go from shared hosting to VPS because of high CPU usage. Here are my server status:
http://elementsforum.co.cc/status.php

I'm worried the CPU usage is still too high. Looking at that server status, is there something "wrong" with the forum? Is there something I could and should do to improve CPU?

I've done most of the things in that sticky thread over there. I don't have the APC yet, only the file based caching because my SMF doesn't find it on the server (I have sent a tiecket about it to my hosting provider).

Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you.

Make sure you specify a custom avatar directory, and try turning off the calendar.

Usually 50 to 100 users line is the max you can get away with on shared hosting.
Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?
