I’m running quite a lot of sites on a 3 CPU core, high frequency Vultr VPS and due to the CPU usage of the backup process I was having to carefully stagger the timing of the incremental backups so that they could all run during the early hours of the morning without overlapping.
The CPU usage while the backups were running was like this:
But after the recent RunCloud Agent v2.7.1 update it’s now like this:
Instead of regular 70-90% CPU spikes during the backup process it’s now down to only 20-30%.
In the changelog it has:
- Improved: Optimize temporary cache size during incremental backup process
So a big thankyou to the devs who made that update as it’s made a huge improvement to the CPU usage for incremental backups which was one of the main issues I was having to mange with the server.
