I'm posting this as a user issue because I have no reason to believe it's a server issue, but I just don't know.

One of my resellers is reporting some, but not all, of his wordpress sites, are running extremely slow, taking minutes (in some cases) to come up or move between pages). Other sies are fine. Already made sure we're using right-sized my.conf file, php is mod-ruid2, and serverload is averaging under 1.0 for hours (usually under 0.65).

All other sites on server including other wordpress sites from him, and wordpress sites from a power-reseller are running very fast. No other complaints.

Any ideas on what he or I should be looking at?

I'm scheduled to move him to his own server by next month, but this doesn't seem to be a server issue; the server is not overloaded.

Worst case is I'll move more quickly, but I'd really like to know if anyone with wordpress experience has any ideas.

Thanks.

Jeff

My client has contacted me to let me know that after I checked the server for him, and we together did some analysis to verify that the problem was only with some sites of his and not with the sever as a whole, he discovered that the problem was an incompatibility between a plugin he was using and a recent wordpress update.

I've asked him to let me know what it was; and if he does, I'll post it here. Problem is marked as solved.

a maybe not so wild guess would be some sort of bottleneck on the network.
most likely between the site and an external resource - like facebook, google, and all those "plugins" that use external JS.

can you check if there is some common ground on those websites?
i.e all loading the google analytics, or all having images from flickr, etc.
you dont really need to log into admin, just browse those sites and check (maybe use the firebug to see the network resources)

What your client meant, is that the WordPress plugin trackthatstat 1.2.3 is not compatible with the newest WordPress version. When I lookup that plugin, I see it is deleted from Wordpress.org, as the page does not exist anymore: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/track-that-stat/

Also http://trackthatstat.org does only give a database error, so the plugin is most likely not developed anymore.

So the fault for this was your clients fault alone, he should always make sure that he is running the newest versions of plugins, and remove plugins that is no longer supported. :)

glad to see this wasn't a server fault :)
