Hi,
Sometimes my site slows down and when I check the processes I see this high memory process. How can I identify the problem?
Thank you

Who is your hosting company?

PHP has some memory-related settings and functions.  You may be able to use these to identify memory usage patterns.
http://php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.memory-limit
http://php.net/manual/en/function.memory-get-usage.php
http://php.net/manual/en/function.memory-get-peak-usage.php

If you're running a back-level version of PHP (Less than PHP 7) you may find that arrays and objects have very high memory requirements.  Unset() can release most of the memory that is consumed by large arrays.  Large arrays can result from SQL queries with SELECT *, or other similar activities that load large files, such as parsing large XML documents.

Hi Ray,
I have a dedicated server and I manage the whm panel.
The problem occurs once or twice a day, the memory goes up and returns back to normal in about 1 min.
I suspect  from some of the queries and php scripts but can not catch the exact part that increases the memory.
I use php 5, I may upgrade it but before that I would prefer to solve the problem before the upgrade since after the upgrade the symptoms may disappear even the problem keeps going on.
Thank you.

Maybe something like this will help.  You can drop a one-line function call into the scripts where you suspect an issue.

 */
error_reporting(E_ALL);


// A FUNCTION TO LOG THE MEMORY USAGE
function memory_log($tag = NULL)
{
    $log = ini_get('error_log');
    ini_set('error_log', 'memory_log');
    error_log($tag . ' ' . number_format( memory_get_usage() ) );
    ini_set('error_log', $log);
}


$foo = range(0,15);
memory_log('small');

$bar = range(0,32767);
memory_log('large');


// SHOW THE MEMORY LOG
echo file_get_contents('memory_log');

Open in new window

Outputs something like
[07-Nov-2016 08:28:39 America/Chicago] small 217,176
[07-Nov-2016 08:28:39 America/Chicago] large 4,936,400
