How can I check CPU usage on my WooCommerce plan?

In this article, we will explain the thought process behind CPU and how it is utilized in the WPX WooCommerce plans, as well as given limitations and procedures.

How is CPU measured in my WPX WooCommerce plan?

CPU is mainly measured by “minutes” per one CPU core. Additionally, it depends on the way you use the CPU cores that are available to you. If they are not maxed, then the CPU minutes are used in half. To give a brief example:

If you are using 1 CPU Core for one minute (real-time), that equals 1 CPU minute.

If you are using 0.5 of a CPU Core for one minute (real-time) that equals 0.5 CPU minutes.

It is hard to measure the CPU usage of a website definitively because the need for resources will not be always high. The usage therefore drops whenever traffic is lower and there aren’t a lot of visitors and spikes, whenever there is a campaign for sales or different promotions resulting in higher traffic and the need for more resources.

To give a better understanding, we will provide an overall statistic, depending on the WooCommerce plan you choose:

Tier 1: Powestore – 2 CPU Cores

That plan provides CPU Cores that equal 432 minutes per day in CPU minutes.

Tier 2: Superstore – 3 CPU Cores

That plan provides CPU Cores that equal 864 minutes per day in CPU minutes.

Tier 3: Hyperstore – 4 CPU Cores

That plan provides CPU Cores that equal 1440 minutes per day in CPU minutes.

Despite the inconstant need for resources on a website, the formula for tracking and calculating CPU Usage remains the same within the logic of used CPU minutes equaled in real-time minutes.

What happens if I cross my CPU minutes on my WPX WooCommerce plan?

If there is a case where you use more CPU minutes than what the plan offers, then you do not need to worry.

In detail, the first step would be automatic detection which results in a ticket that is generated and sent to our Security and Optimization Team for evaluation.

You will also receive a notification in your WPX Control Panel, regarding the automatic ticket which was created and the connection to it being CPU Limit.

Keep in mind, that like any other process or limitation at WPX, we will never shut down or restrict the resources of your websites immediately without reason or warning.

The time for processing such a request will be between 24 – 48 hours, depending on the working hours and days when the ticket is created and escalated in our system to our experts.

Our Security and Optimization Team will provide you with a thorough explanation of CPU Graphs and visualization of the usage. The cause and spikes that exceeded the given limitations and of course, possible solutions which could fix the case.

If you have any other questions on the topic, don’t hesitate to contact the WPX Support Team via live chat (use the bottom right-hand widget) and they will respond and help within 30 seconds or less.
