NodeQuery - High Resource Consumption


Well-known member
Not related to Xenforo, so please more to the appropriate area if seemed unsuitable for this section.

So i have recently been getting nodequery email alerts saying I have high resource consumption.

Example is as below:
Server: website.com

Alert Trigger: 2016-04-14 14:59:01

I have only 189 people online and my Ram is 6GB on my VPS. Is there a reason why mySQL is taking up 3.2GB?

Any ideas?

Do i need to bump up my RAM as this is not even a busy period, and are there any processes that can be deactivated that are not needed? For example i do use memcached, but not sure about the others (Sorry im not a hardware/network literate person).

@MattW Any ideas?
