Possibly. Eating resources as in disk space, bandwidth, or something else?
My CPU usage is always steady between 65%-85%. The loading of the site sometimes does reach 1 minute+

My site uses alot of communication between PHP+MySql, and with all the traffic I receive, the CPU usage make sense, to a point.

Ill upgrade a plan and a week or two later, I have to re-size again.
