    Hello JP

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    I checked your site but I must say I had some troubles dong that as from time to time back-end was becoming pretty unresponsive. Did you encounter this too or it's always working fine for you?

    I also noticed a lot of "Fatal Error: Allowed memory XXXX exhausted" errors in logs meaning that the site is trying to use up more PHP memory than it's allowed to and quite a bit of "not 200 status response" from WPMU DEV API.

    I think that's all related as bulk optimization takes a lot of requests and if there's also a heavy traffic on site and other tasks running and the memory error happens, the process might stop. However, since this seems to be a huge live (production) site I didn't take any risk to make any changes or do any tests on it whatsoever.

    I see that you're hosting with WPEngine and they provide a "one click staging" site creation so would that be possible that you'd create a staging site and provide us with full access to it? On such staging site we could safely perform all the tests needed to troubleshoot and fix that so I would include our developers in the case and they'd investigate the case.

    If that's possible, please create such site and provide me with direct access credentials to it.
