My site is only having 5k - 6k users per day.  My site is hosted on arvixe (shared hosting plan). Today i received a mail from them saying that my site is using memory more than expected. Adding the mail below. Any clue on what is causing it ?

1. Am using XML for data storage

2. Am running some other blogs on same hosting account (does not have this much users) those does not have this issue

3. Am using the latest version of blogengine

4. I received another one too which is having a very low hits
