Puppeteer can't handle too many request

Hi, I have implemented puppeteer on my ubuntu and it works fine. But if I tried to run multiple processes, it loads too slow, leading to an error.

This is the scenario. I open 2 droplet consoles and one on my PHP configuration, then run puppeteer, but it seems they are splitting the process/connection. Turns out the 3 processes return me an error. (can’t navigate website URL) so I’m worried now, what if there are 1000 users opening my PHP puppeteer at once?

I tried to upgrade my droplet, but the problem did not resolve.

Hello there,

Have you monitored the server’s resource usage when running multiple processes? You can check if the memory or the CPU is too high which can explain the poor performance.

You can examine the server logs and check if there are any references to exhausted memory or similar errors. An additional check will be to check the web-server configuration and see if the web service can hold multiple connections without issues.
