We are using the CakePhp framework for a website we have built.
A few days ago, at an expected peak of concurrent traffic our server with 8GB of RAM crashed due to insufficient RAM resources!!
While trying to see what caused this problem, we found out that each page load uses up to 20mb of ram without taking into account mysql's ram usage.
I find those 20MB of RAM way too high for php files, and i would not expect a widely used framwork to perform that badly, so i guess we have done something wrong.
Can anybody guide me to find out what i am doing wrong?? If i am doing something wrong...
