  • OVZ numproc limit exceeded

    Hello - I have an OVZ-5 server with about 25 websites running, most of which are Wordpress of course. The server is now crashing 2-4 times a day due to the "numproc" limit being exceeded. Processes from scripting are too excessive. Support has mentioned to optimize Wordpress. But, I thought this was a beastly package. Unlimited features and all kinds of good stuff but apparently only good enough to run about 25 sites? What good is unlimited hosted domains and 5TB of bandwidth if one can only run 25 sites?

    I know there are other factors obviously, but for the most part my issue is that these OVZ plans are only good for running a robust site or two. The features regarding unlimited this and that is bull.

    Am I missing something? Has anyone else had this problem?

    Just to clarify, my plan was to get a nice OVZ plan and migrate 95 websites to it. Upgrading to higher OVZ plans as necessary. But, it seems it is quite weak. I only have one site pulling any kind of traffic and it's nowhere near the limit.

    Thanks,
    William

    You plan to migrate 100 websites (wordpress) on a VIRTUAL (that what V stands for in a VPS) ?! Yes you are missing something... wordpress consumes resources... a lot. I can see this may come as a shock to you but unlimited domains does not equal unlimited hardware resources... And if by a robust site or two you mean a poorly optimized websites with 20+ plugin each than yes that is what they are good for...

      Just a curious question Yav, would the offered unlimited cpanel reseller plans handle this many wordpress sites?

        Considering each account (out of the 70 or 210 depending on the plan) has a 512MB ram limit I would say that you can have at least 70/210 wordpress sites in each without a problem.

          Right on, maybe webraven would consider one of those plans as a viable option to a vps. They are priced very reasonable.

            Yav, will semi-dedicated server solve his problem too?

              no, anything that has you hosting many domains under one roof as in a single account is not an option, if it isn't a dedicated server of course.

                Hello Yav -

                You plan to migrate 100 websites (wordpress) on a VIRTUAL (that what V stands for in a VPS) ?! Yes you are missing something... wordpress consumes resources... a lot.

                I hear what you are saying. And, I understand this. I guess I just have a problem with the marketing of things. OVZ is virtual of course ... I get that. But, providers really love kicking out the rosy red picture of all the great features when really they should be straight up with it's customers. I don't ever see any of them mentioning anything about CPU cycles. Seems to me this is the most important thing to understand.

                I know Wordpress is a hog, especially when you get all those 3rd party plugins - and some are coded really badly making matters worse, but to have the OVZ-5 plan only work half decently with a handful of sites that don't pull any traffic, well that's just a shame. The OVZ plans offered are lame in my opinion, now with this in mind. I thought this virtualization product was groundbreaking. Doesn't seem so to me - after all. Unless they are throttling the CPU pretty hard on those plans. Crappy environment.

                When I asked support about the cpanel option as well. The answers I received pretty much told me they simply don't know. Low level support. In fact, the cpanel options are on shared environments as well. Back to the cycle issue. Probably, they have more alotted to those packages than the crappy OVZ plans. But, who the hell knows since they don't offer up any relative guidance on the matter.

                I've been doing this a long time. I just thought I was on to something. Truth is ... you need a dedicated box or some serious cloud provider like LiquidWeb ... recently purchased Rackspace's Cloud Sites division. I have a couple of accounts with them.

                If you have a real solution that isn't beaten up through the mill already ... you know ... some fresh insight on how to get some really good hosting at a good price, please shed some light as I'd be interested to learn about this.

                Thanks,
                Bill

                  The virtualization product IS groundbreaking. You just can't expect to host badly written scripts on it that would consume the universe if you let them in terms of hardware resources. The wordpress CORE itself is not the problem its the themes and plugins written by God only know who . You can't expect your car to run the same miles on a full tank if its empty and if it is filled through the roof sort to speak. I am sure you understand what I mean. I don't think the issue is with the control panel at all, and that is why we don't know If something is badly written and consumes a lot of resources it will be the same with any control panel basically. If you have been doing this for a long time as you say you should be ware of how a virualization system works as well as how Linux system resources are being spent and used... So it should not be that hard for you to find what and which plugin or themes is malfunctioning... In any case the problem is not with the hardware or the virtual boxes... We have customers running game servers on lesser than your plan... That is all I am going to say on the matter.
