Unusually High CPU Usage in PHP-FPM


I am currently operating a WordPress site in an Ubuntu environment with Nginx 1.24, PHP 8.0-FPM, and MariaDB on a VPS server equipped with 1 core and 8GB of RAM. I have noticed an unusually high CPU usage when monitoring the server with Netdata.

Despite the traffic being low and only a single instance of PHP-FPM running, the CPU usage consistently remains around 3000-4000%.

I have examined several logs to identify the root of this issue, but I haven’t found any noticeable anomalies.

Could anyone shed some light on what might be causing this problem and suggest possible solutions? I would greatly appreciate any assistance.

Thank you.
