Urgent: ImageMagick causes high server- & CPU load

    I've found out by using the "top" command that Imagemagick causes a very high server- & CPU load on my server. These high loads occur when the command "convert" is active.

    Is there a way to avoid/reduce these high server- & cpu loads?

    Hi Hans,

    I have some sites that make a lot of use of ImageMagick (really a lot), and do not have a high load problem with this

    Are you using extra options with the convert, and from what to what are you converting?

    Hi edge,
    Thanks for your reply. Well i have a lot of TYPO3 & some osCommerce websites that make use of imagemagick. During image converting the server- & cpu-loads are too high for my server.

    The output is:
    Version: ImageMagick 6.2.4 02/10/07 Q16 http://www.imagemagick.org

    I will take a look at that link. Thanks.

    I want to know how i can configure ImageMagick to prevent high CPU rates and memory consumption on the shared hosting server.
    I did not find an answer yet.
