Find Poorly Optimized Scripts

Posted on 2006-11-16

My memory and CPU usage have been going quite high lately, and I am wondering what is the easiest way to monitor the scripts running on my server to find out which ones are using the most CPU and memory.  I need something that does more than top in SSH and can help me pinpoint it more than the page in WHM that shows top processes.

What more than top are you looking for?

I have been optimizing all the scripts on my site and the server load problem has not gone away.  I want to try and find what is causing the problem, but top just shows things like what user the process is from and nothing very specific.  I want to try and pinpoint certain scripts that are causing the problem.

Try doing:

ps ax

to show what processes are running (and the parameters they are running with) at the time of the problems.  Additionally, check the web logs and error logs, as well as the message logs.

That doesn't help me see which ones are causing the load problem though.
