Not many details,

Please post /etc/my.cnf config
run tools like mysqltuner.pl and mysqlreport, and post the result
post the result of top etc.

do you run tools like munin for monitoring ?
you can post the result graphs (for disk, cpu usage, load, mysql)

finally please post the versions of php, mysql that you use
and names of the scripts that sites are running (if not custom)

or if you need professional optimization done, please contact me directly on PM

This might be a bit easier:
mysqlmymonlite.sh server stats gathering tool for cPanel Server - cPanel Forums
