I'm facing an issue on my dedicated server where one of my websites experiences high CPU load intermittently. I'm not sure which part of the website is causing this spike. I've tried some basic troubleshooting steps, such as disabling plugins and optimizing my database, but the problem persists.

I'm looking for insights from other forum members on how to identify and resolve high-load issues for a specific website on a dedicated server. Here are some specific questions I have:
  • What are some common causes of high CPU load on a website?
  • What are some tools and techniques that I can use to identify the specific part of my website that is causing the high CPU load?
  • Once I've identified the problem area, what are some steps I can take to resolve the issue?
I've also included some additional information about my website and server environment below, in case it is helpful:
  • Website platform: WordPress
  • Website plugins: Yoast SEO, WooCommerce, Akismet
  • Database: MySQL
  • Server operating system: Centos 7
  • Server CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2650 v4
  • Server RAM: 32GB
Any insights or advice would be greatly appreciated!
