I am new to server management. I love the platform and the pricing, but I’m disappointed in the FAQ’s and documentation. I can’t find any source on the question “When is it the right time to upgrade my server?” or documentation explaining how to understand the server graphs. Any expert advice? My CPU usage now reaches 20-35%. And memory 65-75%. Of course, memory and CPU is easy to understand, but I don’t know at what percentage I should upgrade. And Disk I/O and bandwidth? How much is low, medium, or high usage? Any commands to figure out max I/O and bandwidth?
