Option to pause running websites

Please add an option to start or stop a website running in the background so that we can avoid the unnecessary consumption of resources. Currently, when we start DevKinsta, all websites added in it start running in the background, which consumes more PC resources.

Agreed, I have currently over 8 sites running at once and don’t have to have to delete any because some are very large and will take a while to pull again. Would be nice to be able to pause the websites but without the issues that Local has when doing so.

Thanks for the feedback and feature request @Andrew_Fair @thehungrybird ! One thing I do want to note here is that due to it running on Docker, the amount of sites installed on DevKinsta does not cause performance issues. All the sites are run within the Docker containers.

yes. I know it’s running inside a docker container but I noticed the consumption in resources increases when you’ve multiple websites running rather than a single website.

Yes, Vmmem was running over 4k MB’s last night, I ended up having to shut everything down and restart it. Though it standard runs at 2,034MB.

Though are you saying that if you do not have all 8 sites open in a browser that it doesn’t matter? Only whatever you are serving consumes resources and the rest are at rest?

@Andrew_Fair All sites are run within the same FPM and MariaDB Docker containers thus more sites does not equal more resources being used. That’s correct that unless you have all 8 sites performing tasks at once and are open, performance shouldn’t be affected by the number of sites you have on DevKinsta.
