Node.js. Response is delayed after a certain time

I have published nodejs application under apps. When I deploy for the first time, the response returns fast as it should. After 3-4 hours, the responses are returning 6x-7x slow. I’m also using MongoDb. I did not have this problem in the applications that I sent to local and other servers for testing. I guess this is due to digitalocean servers, I couldn’t understand the reason for the problem, can you help?

Do you see any errors in your application logs?

Also, how does the resource utilization look like? I could suggest checking this for both the Node.js app and the MongoDB database.



I have the same issue, I’ve been in digitalocean for a year now. This is the first time I encoutered this issue. I created a ticket regarding this issue, and they didn’t even wait for my reply and closed the ticket. Did you manage to solve this issue?
