WooCommerce Backend Optimization for CPU Overload Issue

Posted last month

We are seeking an experienced WooCommerce backend optimization specialist to address a persistent issue of CPU overload leading to website crashes during peak traffic periods. Our current hosting environment is on Cloudways, with a server configuration of 40 GB RAM and 12 core processors. However, despite this robust setup, our website struggles to handle approximately 1000 concurrent users, leading to CPU overload and subsequent crashes. During off-peak periods, we downsize our server to 16 GB RAM and 4 core processors, which adequately handles our traffic.

Upon investigation, we suspect that one of our essential plugins, the product filter, may be the primary cause of the CPU bottleneck. Since this plugin is utilized across all website pages, its impact on performance is significant. However, we are not entirely certain if it's the sole culprit.

It's crucial to note that we have carefully curated our plugin selection, ensuring that each installed plugin serves a vital function. Thus, removing plugins is not a preferred solution unless absolutely necessary.

In addition to identifying and addressing the plugin-related issues, we aim to conduct load tests both before and after optimization. Our goal is to accommodate over 2500 concurrent users on the 12 core server during peak periods.

Our current optimization setup includes three layers of caching - Cloudflare, Varnish, and Redis. Furthermore, we utilize a plugin for indexing our tables to enhance performance.

As we are currently in the off-season with minimal traffic, we believe this is an opportune time to optimize our backend and rectify any performance bottlenecks. Our objective is to ensure a smooth launch for our upcoming collection without the risk of website crashes due to CPU overload.

We are seeking a freelancer with expertise in analyzing backend setups, identifying performance bottlenecks, optimizing plugin configurations or settings, and conducting thorough load testing to validate improvements.

Key Responsibilities:

Analyze current backend setup and identify performance bottlenecks.
Optimize plugin configurations or settings to alleviate CPU overload.
Conduct load tests to validate improvements.
Provide recommendations for long-term optimization and scalability.
Skills Required:

Strong experience with WooCommerce backend optimization.
Proficiency in identifying and troubleshooting CPU overload issues.
Expertise in plugin configuration and optimization.
Experience with load testing tools and methodologies.
Ability to provide clear and concise recommendations for optimization.
If you have the necessary expertise and are confident in your ability to address our optimization requirements, please submit your proposal outlining your approach, relevant experience, and estimated timeline for completion. We look forward to collaborating with you to ensure the stability and performance of our WooCommerce backend.
