"Monitoring triggered" now what?

Posted August 1, 2017 1.6k views

I setup up a monitor for high cpu usage and daily I get one or two warnings announcing 5 mins or so high cpu usage. I have looked at my wordfence access log in my network multiuser wp dashboard and see nothing untoward for the time period. Should I look anywhere else? Is there anything I can do? If not, is it worth bothering to monitor at all?

Hi @patbell101

You should probably adjust the monitor a bit - to a higher percentage - so you don’t get false-warnings.
Most likely you’re getting the triggers because Ubuntu is checking for updates - or maybe you have Let’s Encrypt checking for certificates.
But you need to monitor your system to see which processes are triggering this - or change the monitor to a higher percentage.
