I am a total noob at server administration. I’ve been running Linux on my desktop at home for a year now, so systemd and general Linux things don’t scare me, but it’s my first time dealing with server related stuff. To slowly ease into what this entails, I’ve started renting servers on Digital Ocean, and I’ve installed a jitsi on one of them.
I used the tutorial from Digital Ocean, and I have installed jitsi-meet on Debian 10 from the
https://download.jitsi.org stable/ repository via apt.
I have set it up and tested with multiple devices whether it works or not but because I have a day job I let the server just run idle for a few days. I have set it up so that no one can start a conference without signing in as the moderator.
What I observed is that the CPU and memory usage is slowly but surely increases day by day, hour by hour. What might be the cause of this behavior? Running
top on the server tells me that
java, ran by the user
jvb eats up currently 9~11 % of CPU and 35.4% MEM. (I attached the respective graphs below)
The dip around 9PM 9/11 is actually when I restarted the servers, because after installation, I didn’t finish up the whole setup.
Any kind of help on how to troubleshoot this issue (will my CPU usage go to 100% eventually?) is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help.
