Troubleshooting common resource allocation problems on your appliance

Note: Because regularly polling your GitHub Enterprise Server instance with continuous integration (CI) or build servers can effectively cause a denial of service attack that results in problems, we recommend using webhooks to push updates. For more information, see "About webhooks".

Use the monitor dashboard to stay informed on your appliance's resource health and make decisions on how to fix high usage issues.

Problem Possible cause(s) Recommendations
High CPU usage VM contention from other services or programs running on the same host If possible, reconfigure other services or programs to use fewer CPU resources. To increase total CPU resources for the VM, see "Increasing CPU or memory resources."
High memory usage VM contention from other services or programs running on the same host If possible, reconfigure other services or programs to use less memory. To increase the total memory available on the VM, see "Increasing CPU or memory resources."
Low disk space availability Large binaries or log files consuming disk space If possible, host large binaries on a separate server, and compress or archive log files. If necessary, increase disk space on the VM by following the steps for your platform in "Increasing storage capacity."
Higher than usual response times Often caused by one of the above issues Identify and fix the underlying issues. If response times remain high, contact GitHub Enterprise Support or GitHub Premium Support.
Elevated error rates Software issues Contact GitHub Enterprise Support or GitHub Premium Support and include your support bundle. For more information, see "Providing data to GitHub Enterprise Support."
