Whoops, my head will be squashed tomorrow. Asked to put monitoring in other week by boss, sysadmin been complaining about high CPU, apparently 10 requests (different domains) to the one VM on our servers every 10 seconds is killing it. However this server is being used for MySQL and serving web requests by Apache and PHP. Then also running a few jobs like consuming queues etc.

Wtf do I do? Every time I tell him about more resources (we have decent 2 rack servers just running 20 vms and only 1 VM is for web sites) he says software should be made to work with what we have.

    Show him the data which proves you need more resources. He'll never believe you if you just tell him.

    Equally, he isn't a programmer, so he won't understand which further extends my point above.
