    I’m using the ical import to pull in about 25 calendar feeds to our site. Currently have them importing every 4 hours. Because of the number of calendars, when the imports happen, I’m seeing the imports basically use all available CPU on my server while those are happening. This spike lasts for 5-15 minutes.

    Is there any way to spread out the imports so that they aren’t all occurring at the same time? I’d like to reduce server load a bit, or at least spread it out, if possible.

    Hi Clay,

    I’d recommend installing WP Cli and triggering the feed sync via a cron job.

    The plugin exposes a number of commands which are available through the WP CLI. In particulars:

    wp eo ical-feed fetch <id>
    

    You can list the feeds with

    wp eo ical-feed list

    thanks, this looks like it may do the trick for me.
