- Plesk for Linux
- During Plesk Weekly Maintenance task high CPU load occurs while BackupRestoreStats task execution:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
1 root 20 0 176072 3744 2048 S 98.0 0.4 0:02.75 BackupRestoreStats
. . .
On the server a lot of backups are stored (for example, several thousand):
# find /var/lib/psa/dumps/ -type f | wc -l
The huge amount of backups requires a lot of resources to proceed with BackupRestoreStats task.
Reduce the number of backups, for example, using backup rotation:
- Go to Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Settings.
- Specify the maximum number of full backups that can be stored in any type of storage (Maximum number of full backup files to store).
