Using a Dedicate Droplet for a Database

  • Posted March 21, 2014


My site is eating resources like crazy… I want to lower resource usage by moving my DB to a dedicated droplet from where the site is hosted…

Does this make sense? Would i help with my resource usage?

My CPU usage is always steady between 65%-85%. The loading of the site sometimes does reach 1 minute+ <br> <br>My site uses alot of communication between PHP+MySql, and with all the traffic I receive, the CPU usage make sense, to a point. <br> <br>Ill upgrade a plan and a week or two later, I have to re-size again.

Possibly. Eating resources as in disk space, bandwidth, or something else?
