I recently moved to linode from a managed/autoscaled host.
MY site is extremely slow - unresponsive most of the time. I was on the 512 mb, 20gig storage, 200 gig transfer plan but upgraded thinking it might need more. Now I have a 712mb, 300 gig storage, 300 gig transfer.
My site is 1.5 GB in mysql and gets around 3k page views per day. I installed iotop and the picture below is what I got. I've seen mysql is eating up a lot.
Do you have any recommendations as to what I can do to keep my site up?
I am very new to server mgmt.
Thanks very much.
