Optimizing Magento2 php-fpm configuration parameters

How does the configuration file look

user = magento
group = www-data
listen.owner = magento
listen.group = www-data
listen = /var/run/php/php7.3-fpm-magento.sock
pm = ondemand
pm.max_children = 50
pm.process_idle_timeout = 10s
pm.max_requests = 500
chdir = /

How do we calculate max_children


wget --quiet https://$URL/sitemap.xml --no-cache --output-document - | egrep -o "http(s?):\/\/$URL[^] \"\(\)\]*" | while read line; do
time curl -A 'Cache Warmer' -s -L $line > /dev/null 2>&1
echo $line
ps -ylC php-fpm — sort:rss
ps --no-headers -o "rss,cmd" -C php-fpm | awk '{ sum+=$1 } END { printf ("%d%s\n", sum/NR/1024,"Mb") }'

The hickup

Indications that you allow too few/many processes:

[11-Oct-2019 10:05:24] WARNING: [pool www] server reached pm.max_children setting (35), consider raising it

Stress test your server to define the best value possible
