Is this normal memory usage?

Seems that my 1 wordpress website is using about 380mb of memory. Is this normal? I’m not seeing any error logs.

Im using Serverpilot to monitor the memory:

I’m wondering what I can do to improve this. I thought Id be able to host atleast 10 WP websites with this server, but its looking like ill only be able to do 2 or 3.

I use WP-Rocket & CDNbunny also.

On a side note, for some reason, my droplet>graph isn’t populating any info. I forgot to check it when creating the droplet so I had to follow a script to install it. After I installed it (and waited 20 minutes) it looks like this (though that is a separate question I asked support)

It’s a small WordPress site I don’t think its a plugin issue. I recently hardened my server hoping that would fix the issue but it didn’t. What I did was create a different user with admin rights and disabled root SSH login. Then I disabled password login (auth key required), and finally, I installed fail2ban.

However, the journald log is continuing to use more and more memory until I restart my system. I’m a noob so I’m having a hard time figuring out the problem. I’m not entirely sure which commands I should be using to find the issue. One thing I did was run: journalctl -f SS: which is the most recent journal entries. I do see some red so I guess that’s bad. Any idea what’s going on or how I can troubleshoot this further?

Hello, @mike212916

Could you please let me know if you’ve checked what exactly is causing the memory usage? Have you installed a lot of plugins that can be causing some high temporary memory usage? From my previous experience 2GB or RAM should be enough for 10 WordPress only if their traffic is low and the sites are not using any “heavy” plugins to operate as well.

As for the second question this is best to discuss with our amazing support team as they will be able to further assist you with personal account queries and questions.
