Hello

At the rush hour of the traffic the website shows the following error

 

Could not establish database connection. Please check the username, password and hostname in the config file, and if necessary set up the appropriate MySQL user and privileges.

 I migrate the website from 4 GB RAM hosting to 8GB

Then I faced the same issue I did migrate the website to 64GB RAM hosting and still I face the same error

I increased the max_connections from 151 to 1000 but I still get the same error

According to this, the error you're getting (errcode 28) means that the disk is full. So I think you might need to increase disk space rather than RAM.

And this is my hosting provider suggestion :

It appears the following table is causing these queries:
###################
+---------------+-------------+-----------+--------------+------------------------+
| TABLE_SCHEMA | TABLE_NAME | ROWS_READ | ROWS_CHANGED | ROWS_CHANGED_X_INDEXES |
+---------------+-------------+-----------+--------------+------------------------+
| isalna_isalna | qa_eventlog | 189416452 | 0 | 0 |
+---------------+-------------+-----------+--------------+------------------------+
###################

This table looks to be tracking visitors to the site. This type of activity normally causes these types of high load issues and we recommend against using this. Turning off the visitor tracking should help reduce the overall stress on the server and allow services to operate normally.

You can turn that off in Admins > Plugins, click 'options' on Event Logger plugin and untick the boxes.
