  • Answered
What is load effect on the website, VPS, if I use filezilla to download my WP_CONTENT directory? It it fairly substantial directory. I tried to use CPanel and it shot up to 4. Not good. thanks
Hello karenratte!

If a server has high disk I/O, it can cause pending processes to stack and cause a load spike. Its difficult to say why it would have spiked.

FTP should not cause your server to go on a high load typically; however, it depends on the server I/O and the resources it is using. If you see this happen again, you will want to contact support either by chat, phone (1-888-321-4678 ext 2), or by email ([email protected]).
