Small Spikes in CPU on Wordpress Droplet
So I have 3 droplets running and two of them are custom websites I’ve built. On those two droplets, my cpu is always around 3 to 5% which is very normal.
However, on my other droplet that is running WordPress on ubuntu my cpu has some small spikes that I don’t know the cause and would like your input on.
I used to have spikes to 100% and I even got the “error establishing data base connection” error on the website sometimes, but now I’ve disabled a plugin that I think was causing that problem and I’ve created a swap memory just in case. That doesn’t happen anymore.
But now I am having small spikes to a max of 20% of cpu for no reason at all, that happens when no one is on the website and I’m not even on the admin panel.
I don’t have any automation going on, is just a basic website with some iframes to some videos on other websites.
Should I be worried about this?
My cpu graph looks like this now :Example
