It says Redis is in the stack. I wonder if something is wrong at that layer.
@theDanielJLewis That sucks man. Sorry about that. Cloud stuff can make you feel helpless at times. Just a black box.
@dave Get this. Vultr copy from LA to LA and retesting shows lower memory usage! But same loading time.
NJ copy is still loading.
Besides, _this_ particular site isn't plugin-heavy.
I have Query Monitor, but I can't find any way in it or any other tool that will show me _what_ is using the RAM, only how much is being used in total.
The same site on different servers (if the config is different) can easily take different amount of RAM or CPU. Maybe the live server has PHP compiling enabled etc. - But I still think the load time in this case is probably DNS lookups. (Unless it's something like a really slow database connection).
