XF 1.2 Optimizing forum

Hello, I've been in contact with my host and they're suggesting I optimize my forum? I'm on a shared hosting plan and am only running 4 plugins which where all previously working fine:

Master Forums
Mobile Style Selector
[Nobita] Threads and messages per page
[RT] online status ribbon

Any suggestions to optimize my forum?

Optimise in what way?

Sounds like you may need to consider a new host.

If your forum is experiencing problems, disable add-ons and try again.

Also in contact with my host they're saying my forums using up too many processes (the default is 25). My forum was running fine before and suddenly I'm getting a lot of errors/timeouts. They're saying I must optimize the forum, the terms being used pretty loosely to be honest.

Sorry about the bump but it's time to move servers. I've recently been suspended because of this large load time. It's weird because the activity fluctuates and it really shouldn't be this high. I don't know why... Unless my sites suddenly on the rise (which I doubt). I got an email today:

Apologies, my knowledge when it comes to this is bad so I'll just attach the email they sent to me.

I apologize, but I was forced to suspend the script /home/coolies/public_html/forums/ as it was causing a high load on the server, and due to it affecting all of the other accounts on the system, I was forced to take immediate action for the health of the server. Unfortunately I do not have any specific recommendations for this script, however, in general, adding some sort of caching mechanism, where the script does not need to generate a new page with every request, helps to lower the over load that a script will cause. Likely the original author or support group of the software that you are using will be able to help you to understand how to add something of this nature. If you reply back to this with your IP address (http://www.hostgator.com/ip.shtml) we will be more than happy to go ahead enable HTTP access for you, so that you can safely work on the script without it causing further issues. Please let us know how you would like to proceed.
