Hello, @darapenhchetStarfish

I will recommend you to analyze the current process running on your droplet and see the exact memory usage using any monitoring tools like top or htop

top is available on both Linux and Unix systems, but in addition to displaying the load averages for pre-set historical intervals, it provides periodic real-time CPU usage information as well as other pertinent performance metrics. Whereas uptime runs and exits, top stays in the foreground and refreshes at regular intervals.

If you’re not familiar with top/htop I will recommend you to check our article about monitoring CPU use on droplets. You can check the top part of the article where this is explained in details:

You can examine the server’s performance and then get back to me with some details regarding the memory usage.

Hope this helps!
