    in the usage instructions here https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/wordpress-chat-plugin/#usage

    it says;

    It’s important to note that self-hosted chat functionality can be very resource-intensive. While we’ve made every effort to ensure that the load this plugin can put on your server is kept to a minimum, there are a couple of things to keep in mind:

    If you have not yet increased the memory allocated to WordPress on your site (standard is 40M), now may be a good time to do so. Add the following to your wp-config.php file, before the line that says “That’s all, stop editing!”:
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');

    If you’re on a shared hosting plan, you may want to consider upgrading. Popular sites with lots of traffic and numerous chat instances running simultaneously can quickly tax your server. Contact your host for more on this if you notice things get a bit sluggish.

    hope this helps.

    thanks.
