    Re: Memory usage on Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 64 bits

    Stop work mean that when i try to load the site with browser, I can't. It takes too long to respond.

    Type of site: Dynamic content with a database behind it.
    Database: Mysql
    Webserver: Apache

    When i run command:
    Code:
    top
    i receive this:

    also a load average of 9 how many cores do you have, sounds like your CPU is pegged and that's why your site is unresponsive.

    From their OP, it looks like it's a hex core CPU.

    I have a feeling the load is that high because ffmpeg is running 8 times, all as www-data, which shouldn't be launching ffmpeg, as far as I know...

    CPU : AMD FX-6200 /3.8G/X6/BOX AM3+
    Many users use ffmpeg to convert at same time. This can be the problem or no ? And if this is the problem how to correct it ?

    Thanks !

    Yes, this would be the problem. I assume your site is calling ffmpeg to convert video. Video conversion is very, very CPU and RAM intensive and what's most likely happening is that there are too many conversions happening at once. If there are more than 6, then your CPU can't really keep up and will stop responding while it tries to chug through all the video data. You'll either need to reprogram the site to queue video conversions and limit them to 4 or 5 at a time, or add more CPU cores to your server (though there are very diminishing returns on that as the highest you'd be able to go with that platform is 8 cores with an FX-8xxx CPU.

    EDIT: perhaps this will be helpful in reorganizing your application: http://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/wiki/U...0PHP%20scripts

    Small explanation in order.

    Immagine each CPU is a checkout line at the supermarket.

    Each = represents full processor utilization, and is equal to 1.0 load in linux.


    So, if you have two lines, it looks like this


    ------------------
    ==================
    ------------------
    ==================
    ------------------

    And if you have more lanes, and so on.

    Now, If you have four processors, and a load of 8, it will look something like this


    ------------------
    ==
    ------------------
    ==
    ------------------
    ==
    ------------------
    ==
    ------------------

    The second = (after the first) shows that there is exactly 4.0 loads waiting to process ( one on each processor due to SMP).

    That means that there are tasks queued to run on the processor, but cannot due to the fact that the processors are still processing the first =. Those tasks will be queued until some of the tasks in the first '=' finish running.

    As a result, you are experiencing very slow response times- your query is queued somewhere in the line

    Hello,

    Thanks you for help ! I try
    Code:
    http://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/wiki/Using%20FFmpeg%20from%20PHP%20scripts
    , but it is the same. I don't know how to correct it to work okay

    Yes, fix your code and buy more hardware, your site is taxing the server and it can't handle the load.
