Performance trouble with n8n (502,504 erors, slow loading)

Number of executions per hours: 132
Number of workflows: 23
Cumunity Edition
n8n Version 1.26.0

    location / {
        proxy_pass;  # Ensure this IP and port are correct
        proxy_set_header Host $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';  # For WebSocket support, otherwise remove
        proxy_http_version 1.1;

Starting latest 2-3 weeks i get lots of errors and slow interface opening, I check server performace is fine. I have an 2vCPU 8GB RAM, 80GB SSD server so not sure why recently i get so slow since server peronce seems fine.

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

In nginx logs i get this:

[error] 426101#426101: 13262 recv() failed (104: Unknown error) while reading response header from upstream, client: 162.158..*, server:, request: “GET /rest/executions?filter=%7B%7D&lastId=213057&limit=10 HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “{}&lastId=213057&limit=10”, host: “”, referrer: “”

I also tried to access n8n without any reverse proxy direct ip and port, and all the above problems can be replicated. can you help me?

I fixed this, it was because of the startup environments i was using to keep database small:

If you have same problem my sugestion is to remove this envirments variables and just find an other way to keep database small, what i did i migrated to postgresql from sqlite as i think is much easier to partially delete some information copared to sqlight, but i might be wrong :slight_smile: so better remove manually some informations from tables with lots of mb
