The benefit of a dedicated server on Google Cloud is also that we can offer very insightful Server Metrics that are not possible with shared hosting.

This week we added a very powerful feature to the existing CPU and Memory usage, called Events:

Events currently show all plugin activations and deactivations. The best thing about this is that you can see what plugin was de/activated and how it correlates to your server resource usage.

Let’s take a closer look at the store above:

We see the disabling of the two plugins Query Monitor and WP Sweep correlates to a large drop in Memory usage. In this case, the culprit was Query Monitor since we know it can be a resource hog and should only be used for troubleshooting.

This goes the other way around as well – you might enable a plugin that will cause an uptick in resource usage. That will give you a great idea of how some plugins impact your store.
