If you neglected to take my advice and go with Dreamhost, then you may have already ran into the problem of not having enough bandwidth left to efficiently run your blog.

Unbeknownst to you, some of the problem may be coming from a plugin that is a CPU hog.

And worse than that, it can be a pan in the patootie or nearly impossible to determine if and which plugin is causing the problem.

That is, unless you install the PluginHogDetector.

(Yes, I am aware of the irony on installing yet another plugin to solve the problem!)

Following the steps of PluginHogDetector will significantly decrease the amount of time you’ll have to take in order to find the offensive plugin.

In the end, you could also save significant money with this free plugin as your hosting company will not have a reason to harrass you to upgrade your hostng plan or risk having a blank site until the next bandwidth reset.

Or, (fingers crossed for us both), you could determine that the cause is not plugins but a significant amount of traffic.

Let’s all hope for the latter.
