Memory usage reduction by switching off services?
i'm quite new to Cloudron and think about to use it as a PaaS for Custom Apps.
I've seen that some useful services are already available but i'm not sure if always all of them are needed. Finally all of them cost RAM and a little CPU.
Is it possible to switch of unneeded services, like postgres or mongodb or mysql then not needed?
@fossy You can't really switch them off via the UI. You could:
- Lower the RAM requirements in service settings
- [Unsupported] Attempt to stop the docker container in question manually (Though Cloudron may just restart it anyway)
Anyway, I think it's a moot point though. So long as you are not running the system on something 10 years old, having the required services running will not impact performance (at least not in a way that you would notice.)
@fossy As mugero said, you really have no reason to worry about the services. They use a negligible amount of resources when they are not actually used!
