Heya @siddhantbhasin,

Are you sure you have enough resources, this crashing sounds like it doesn’t have enough resources. All, what crashes, is it your WebService, Database service or something else?

Try adding SWAP to see if that would help. While it’s a short-term solution this can confirm if you have enough rescourses or not. Basically, if you add SWAP and the crashing stops then it’s related to resources.

Swap is a portion of hard drive storage that has been set aside for the operating system to temporarily store data that it can no longer hold in RAM. This lets you increase the amount of information that your server can keep in its working memory, with some caveats. The swap space on the hard drive will be used mainly when there is no longer sufficient space in RAM to hold in-use application data.
