AWS Elastic Beanstalk Docker PHP application

I have a docker container running on AWS EB on a t1.micro, which is a PHP application that loops through some tasks, sleeps for a few minutes, and loops through its tasks again. Tasks involve moving some data on an FTP, and updating records from a Redis store.

It always builds and runs fine, but after a day the health of the application changes to “Warning”, the causes state that CPU is running at 100%, I don’t see any activity on the FTP that it processes, and the logs show nothing indicating the application failing.

  • AWS Docker Golang. 'eb deploy' error
  • Docker random ports & AWS Elastic Load Balancer
  • botocore.exceptions.EndpointConnectionError from inside Mac Docker container
  • docker: possible to create a single file with binaries and packages installed?
  • Docker Swarm - Network Overlay not connecting all containers
  • Java Spring Hibernate application runs on local, but not in aws's ecs docker
  • Is this just a case of upgrading the EC2 instance to a higher spec? Or is there a flaw in the way i’m running the container that would release resource after each iteration.
