Last week on the show, I talked about using FamilySearch Family Tree as part of my strategy for ensuring my work continues.  This weekend, I spent some time getting my tree organized up to my 8 great-grandparents. I'm sharing it in case it is of help to others. :-) http://www.taneya-kalonji.com/genblog/getting-organized-family-tree
Almost exactly one year ago, I posted about my initial excitement around being able to use FamilySearch's Family Tree site. Here we are a year later and I am still very much a champion for the site...

I have an issue w/ my wordpress multisite installation using too much CPU. Our webhost took the site down this morning because of it.  The multisite installation has about 40 sites. I am using a caching plugin. I regularly optimize the database.  

Any suggestions for what I could do to find the cause of the high CPU usage?

Update - my webhost found out what the issue was. someone was trying to download the site w/ third-party software and it was putting an intense load on the server. whew! so glad they figured it out.
