My site relies heavily on mysql queries. I am on the lowest linode plan (1 GB).
I have seen a few reports on here of a slow down in performance on linode in general over the past couple of months. I am trying to figure out if my sluggish performance is as a result of the increased traffic, or if I am experiencing what other users are.
Here is my 30-day CPU graph:
and here is my 30 day I/O graph:
Should I upgrade my plan from the 1GB to the 2GB plan? That is my first thought, but I wanted to run it by some people. Does mysql rely more on CPU, disk I/O, or RAM?
I am in the Atlanta datacenter. Any help is appreciated!
You're barely using I/O nor CPU really. If you're using almost all of your RAM, upgrade the node. If not, assign more RAM to the bottleneck (MySQL?)
Thanks for reply. It didn't seem like I was using that much. I'm talking with linode support too. They had me pull some performance info:
I don't really know what I am looking at here, but wondering if I can get a 2nd set of eyes on it from someone one here.
