So having fixed the phpmyadmin issue i left the server idle for a day. Then i observed this spike:
Accessing MySQL and running “SHOW PROCESSLIST;” gives no results. The server is CLEAN, it is only running Easy Engine and a single website, which is offline (dns not updated).
MySQL keeps spiking like this until i restart it. After the spike another process shows heavy load, “watchdog”
I’ve added 4 GB of SWAP with a swappiness of 10, but i can’t see how this should affect anything.
Any ideas on the reason for this? The server is total idle, no visits, nothing. And mysql spikes in load repeatedly…
