    Hi, there seems to be many topics of "Excessive resource usage" notifications and I just started receiving those also. I dont know if it is related to my recent PHP upgrade to 5.3.25 or not but it started just the same time.

    I would like to know what would be considered as normal resource usage. I keep getting these alerts from several (not all) sites that are using basic wordpress or similar systems, but are small on size and low on traffic. It is usually enough to trigger alert if I open client website and visit 2-3 pages. Is this normal consumption or not?

    Hello :)

    That message is not coming from cPanel, but rather from your LFD application by ConfigServer. While we do have several CSF/LFD users here, you will likely get a better answer to this question on their forums:

    Thank you.

    Thank you, I forgot to mention that I am not looking for a way to modify or to get rid of this notification right now.
    I was hoping to get opinion of that server resource usage, is that normal that wordpress installation uses 220-360 Mb per few page loads? (of course it depends on scripts and code of the site, but compared to average smaller website?)

    The memory requirements for wordpress are actually a bit of a mess, in that it can be a lot 'fatter' than most assume, especially for the admin area - take a read of

    Editing wp-config.php « WordPress Codex

    You'll likely find that WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT in wp-includes/default-constants.php is set to 256M - you'll also find that the actual memory usage (especially in the admin area or with certain themes / plugins) bounces around depending on php version in use.
