Cornerstone causing high CPU usage constantly

after checking cloudlinux and cpu usage logs

I’m seeing multiple CPU processes utilizing php-fpm on php 7.0 showing cornerstone plugs with this error

ENOENT (No such file or directory)


Hi there,

I am not sure why this is happening in your case. Would you please kindly update the theme to version 5.2.4 and the Cornerstone to version 2.1.6. The new version does have better error reports and you may find that there is an error of some kind happening in the environment.

I suggest that you go through a typical troubleshooting process explained here:

Kindly get back with the result of the tests you have done.

Thank you,

Per the support ticket response i’ve updated both X and CS. Please dig in deeper as it still crawls, less buggy but slow.

Cornerstone is not causing any CPU issues for me. If you want me to guess it must be one of the plugins you are using or a script. Try finding what it is first and then look into cornerstone.

Im not a staff member but its the first thing I would do.


Thanks for helping out. :slight_smile:
