CPU Overloads


Recommended Posts

Hello, my dedicated server (on OVH) is experiencing 90% CPU overloads, even when I disable all modules. I am using PHP 7.4. Do you know of a radical way to prevent the overload via Webmin/Virtualmin while I find the real source of the problem, please?

I have already all setting on default and Maximum PHP script run time : 30 sec

Thanks !!

Kernel and CPULinux 5.10-ovh-mod-std on x86_64

Processor information: Intel(R) Xeon(R) D-2141I CPU @ 2.20GHz, 16 cores CPU

Webmin version 2.101

Usermin version 2.001

Virtualmin version 7.8.2

I have an average of 30 visitors per hour.

Everything was working perfectly, it's since a change of Prestashop template that we have this problem. Too many PHP scripts are launching in the Running processes, I go from 370 to 500 in a few seconds without understanding why. That's why I would like to find a solution to limit the overload while managing all my scripts differently.

Thank you for your answers!

You can try stopping all long running process from the control panel which consume more CPU, the same as we do on Windows tasks manager.

Also, the web hosting support team via chat support can help to know which process takes more RAM or CPU usage. I can see CPU usage graphs and stop processes from my Cpanel, attached a screenshot for your reference.
