Could the error shown on the screenshot be the reason why my site is very slow?

If so, I really need help to fix it since I am far from being an engineer!

    This thread about this CPanel + Munin + InnoDb issue should set your mind at ease. The issue is caused by the way Munin counts free space....

I wouldn't think this is why your site is very slow. You can change the alert levels by editing the following file:

vi /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/mysql_innodb

In this file you should see:

env.warning 2147483648
env.critical 1073741824

If the tablespace falls below either of these levels a warning or critical is raised. Change these limits to whatever values (in bytes) you need. If you wish to completely disable this monitoring set the values to 0:

env.warning 0
env.critical 0

Restart munin:

/etc/init.d/munin-node restart
su munin -c /usr/bin/munin-cron

InnoDB stores data in a tablespace. By default, there is one single tablespace and data of all the databases is stored in one file. This file has data dictionary, tables, as well as indexes in it. There is a global parameter innodb_data_file_path that defines this tablespace file. It has a syntax like ibdata1:256M:autoextend, this means at the beginning a file of size 256 MB will be created and then whenever the data size exceeds this, the file will be auto-extended. The innodb_autoextend_increment variable defines in MB's that by how much each increment should be.

Reference link wherein it has mentioned in depth about InnoDB tablespace which can be helpful to you : http://optimmysql.blogspot.in/2007/07/innodb-tablespace-size.html


According to cPanel, you should ignore this error.

The linked page gives instructions on how to remove this indicator from Munin.
