Hiya Guys,
I have the BIG problem, but excuse me my obvious stupidity I can't find in my WHM
what you are talking about in http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=24837

I'm talking about:

1.WHL->System Health->Show Current CPU Usage

Stop? Click on "Pid"-> "Kill Process" then is finish!

2. Solve problem 1. then is problem 2 also solve.


! WHL? Pid? Where exactly is it?

I have this message:

IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
This is cPanel cpuwatch on x.x.com !
While processing, the cpu has been
maxed out for more than a 6 hour period. The current load/uptime line on the server at the time of
this email is
13:00:09 up 11 days, 3:22, 0 users, load average: 4.14, 3.68, 3.54
You should check the server to see why the load is so high and take
steps to lower the load. If you want stats to continue to run even with a high load; Edit
/var/cpanel/cpanel.config and change extracpus to a number larger then 0 (run
/usr/local/cpanel/startup afterwards to pickup the changes).

Also = Although I increased extracpus up to 10, WHM keeps sending the same message.

I looked in WHM and I can't find what are you talking about!? Where exactly is it?

Please Help! I'm so scared my web will brake up!


Thank you very much!
All the best!

Hiya

Hiya,
I found it! and I did it! :(

But you say it's not the best way! :( What is than?

How many accounts on the server?
Just one!

Have you tried a graceful reboot?
No, sorry I'm new to it - how?


Thank you very, very much!

Graceful Reboot is in WHM as well.

WHM > System Reboot section on left menu > Graceful Server Reboot. (no typos I'm pretty sure) ;)

There's a reason the CPU is maxing out and while killing the process is fine, and upping the extracpus setting may get rid of the red icon for a bit if at all, it sounds like you've got a problem there you should deal with. Killing a process that will probably come back and upping the extracpus is not the answer you seek, IMHO of course, though YMMV.

I'd suggest hiring someone to take a closer look and find the problem. For starters what software are you running on this one site? If you're running some out of date script like a phpbb or an old mambo CMS, web calendar or something else along those lines for example, it could be under an attack which would spike your CPU and if you're not sure what to look for, it will keep crashing your server.
