How to figure out which Wordpress plugin maps to php process on server?


Occasionally, my website is crashing due to physical memory overload. My host told me that php processes are overloading the server, and to try to find out which Wordpress plugin is responsible for this, but when I run
Code:
top
I only get this:

Code:
    PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
    9204  thisusr   38  18  287m  68m  40m S  0.0  0.2   0:43.58 php
    11175 thisusr   38  18  286m  66m  40m S  0.0  0.2   0:37.86 php
    13536 thisusr   38  18  279m  60m  40m S  0.0  0.2   0:21.61 php
    14091 thisusr   38  18  284m  66m  40m S  0.0  0.2   0:18.29 php
    14285 thisusr   20   0  136m 1456  668 S  0.0  0.0   0:00.02 pure-ftpd
    15101 thisusr   20   0  135m 1500  704 S  0.0  0.0   0:00.04 pure-ftpd
    17461 thisusr   20   0 98956  15m 2712 S  0.0  0.0   0:00.00 cpsrvd-ssl
    17466 thisusr   20   0 99092  15m 2712 S  0.0  0.0   0:00.00 cpsrvd-ssl
    17745 thisusr   20   0 14908 1132  944 R  0.0  0.0   0:00.00 top
    18979 thisusr   20   0  104m 1984 1004 S  0.0  0.0   0:00.35 sshd
    18983 thisusr   20   0 11508 1332 1100 S  0.0  0.0   0:00.04 bash
How do I find which Wordpress plugin maps to each process with "php" as the command?

top will not help you in this case, I guess.
1. Which plugins of wordpress do you have installed?
2. What is the current setting of
memory_limit = in php.ini?
You may set that to a higher value if you have access to the ini and restart the server. If you have plugins i. e. for embedding MS office docs you will easily run out of memory with standard settings.

Thanks so much for responding! I have GoDaddy economy Linux shared hosting, so I don't believe I can edit php.ini or restart the server. My memory_limit right now is 64M.

64m is not too bad for economy.

I guess you have to find the weak spots by testing the plugins one by one. I took a look around to find some infos as I am not experienced in WP and found this

Good luck

Thank you! I ended up deactivating and deleting the following plugins - not sure which one was the culprit, but the issue is resolved so it was definitely one of them!:
  • Broken Link Checker
  • EWWW Image Optimizer
  • Limit Login Attempts
  • Nextend Facebook Connect
  • Wordpress SEO
  • WP DoNotTrack
  • Wpmudev Updates
