I run a public website on my Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance, but connections to my website are slow.
Over-utilization of your instance's resources might cause slow connections to a website hosted on the instance. To make sure that you aren't over-utilizing your instance's resources, check the following conditions:
Check the instance's system log for exhausted memory or disk full errors.
Make sure that the instance's system log indicates that the web service started correctly and is running.
Make sure that the instance is within CPU utilization limits.
Make sure that the Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume that's attached to the instance didn't reach the IOPS or throughput limits.
Check the instance's system log for exhausted memory or disk full errors
