hi i have a dell power edge r510 , with 4 * 500 gb sataII hdd with hardware raid 10 , xpu xeon 2 * 4 core , i have installed vmware 5 in it . in one vps with 10 GB of ram and 8 core of cpu, i have installed linux centos 5.8 with cpanel.
i am restoring hosts backup but load goes strangely high up to 100 . and every thing goes down till the restore completes . even when restoring small accounts of 100 - 500 gb .
this is similiar to this
Cpu(s): 40.0%us, 0.1%sy, 0.0%ni, 29.7%id, 0.6%wa, 0.3%hi, 0.2%si, 0.0%st
or something like this , cpu , idle and wa are the values which i remember from the moment of high load.
in vmware graphs i see peak in hard a little , but cpu usages decreases very much .
what ca i do for this ?
the load is usually under 2 , but it goes up to 90 100 ... it is very strange as the hdds are new . there is not too much process or traffic or other vps es in the server yet . so please guide me on this.
