I hope that you are well.
look after and run my website [login to view URL] which is hosted through Siteground (Current server stats: 5 CPU Cores, CentOS, 5GB RAM, 40GB SSD,) on the platform of Wordpress and the site is used mainly for Ecommerce purposes. I run the ecommerce platform with Woocommerce.
I'm looking to improve the performance capability of the website not just to raise my Metric speed scores but also to streamline the websites performance to maximise the amount of concurrent users the server can hold. In April i will be launching our new collection and i expect to have around 5000 concurrent users on the day of launch, as a posed to a normal max amount of 150 concurrent users, ideally i would like to know what can be done t0 accommodate this sort of traffic with out a server overload. When testing my home page against Lighthouse i receive good speed times, but when i browse through the woocommerce pages are alot slower, i am aware that woocommerce is a heavy plugin.
On occasion i have had Memory spikes on my server without a higher than normal load of users on the site and have spoken to the siteground team regarding this issues with this as a response
The Input/Output operations per second represent data being written to or read from the SSD and usually are connected with data being written to or read from the database. Unfortunately, we do not have a log that shows exactly which processes caused those IOPS and the recent data shows that there were no abnormal spikes, so I cannot tell you what caused this.
For your convenience I have:
- copied the entire slow MySQL queries log to , in case your developer wants to take a look at those queries towards the database.
- pasted the recent IOPS stats in , in case you want to check those.
Senior Technical Support
I am not an experienced developer and would need help to find out what is causing these issues.
I look forward to hearing from you.
