CPU is running high notification

August 31, 2017 1.7k views
Apache DigitalOcean Monitoring Debian

Every night I get this notification: “DigitalOcean monitoring triggered: mydomain - CPU is running high” at 10:26pm, then 1 minute later at 10:27pm I get the following message “ DigitalOcean monitoring resolved: mydomain - CPU is running high”

I have checked all my logs and cannot see anything that would cause this to happen for 1 minute. The email notifications are getting annoying everyday. Is there something I am missing? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Make you could change the threshold? You are running WordPress after all so CPU usage can spike.
There are other monitoring services but if you really need to use digitaloceans monitoring service and have a problem with it then it’s best you just open a support ticket as the community can’t do much for you.

By “threshold” do you mean the limit at which it triggers the alert? Right now I have it set as “CPU is above 90% for 5 min” Should I up the time to more like 15 min?

Having the same issue here at the same time every night, annoying!
