We recently moved our web servers from some 10 year old boxes to AWS EC2.
Usage of the site is currently higher now (it's our busy season) and the site has become much slower, which is unexpected because our instance sizes are much higher than what we had previously.
We run a pretty small site that only gets a few hundred at a time. We're running a c3.large instance on our webserver, and db.m1.large for our RDS MySQL database. We don't have any read replicas and or multiple webservers (load balancing). According to Google Analytics, we only had 18,106 page views for the whole day.
Our users (external and internal) keep seeing the site time out in their browser. It's pretty much across the board instead of any particular page. MySQL PROCESS LIST is also nearly empty without any table locks or whatnot.
If you look at our stats in CloudWatch, everything should be fine. We have very CPU utilization, and what I think is pretty low Network I/O. Likewise on the RDS side, nothing here is screaming "bottleneck".
EC2 Usage (c3.large)
RDS Usage (db.m1.large)
Any ideas how I should go about troubleshooting this issue?
