Piwigo slow for days after uploading photos


I am running a self hosted pwigo on a synology 1618+ using synology's Web station, through http. I then have a raspiberry pi running NGINX as the reverse proxy so that it now runs through https with a letsencrypt cert.

I uploaded around 300 photos 3 or 4 weeks ago and noticed that piwigo would be extremely slow to resolve. I would type in my URL and it would sit there and spin for 10 to 15 seconds showing nothing. After that time frame the home page would load instantly. If I click to move to an album the same thing would happen. It would show the current page I'm on, no progress bar, and then after 10 to 15 seconds the page would instantly load. sometimes it would be so slow to resolve that I would get an 404 or some type of error.

I let it go for a while thinking that it was due to the new piwigo version. Once an update came out I updated, and after a few days piwigo worked smoothly. So I uploaded about 30 photos this time, and after uploading them for about the last 3 days I have been having the same weird issue, and finally today piwigo starts resolving fast again.

Before this issues there were times where I would upload dozens of photos at once, I would use the gdThumb extension to precache the thumbnails and within 10 minutes piwigo would load and resolve fast and normal. Any ideas or suggestions to what I could be doing wrong?

I run a few other services on my synology nas, (ie synology moments, chat, and bitwarden) they all seem to load fast and without issue.
