Can someone tell me what this message here means?
Is there any documentation to how the 3 numbers are calculated? The message suggests that stats stops when the load is too high, is that correct?
The messages also mentions to change the extracpus value to a number larger than 0. But based on what? I hate messages like that without further documentation and I do not like changing config files without exact explanation what the options are and what they will do to my system.
Anyone any experience with this?


IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
This is cPanel cpuwatch on atlantis.westbay.net!
While processing, the cpu has been
maxed out for more then a 6 hour period. The current load/uptime line on the server at the time of
this email is
8:58am up 11:19, 0 users, load average: 6.37, 4.43, 3.84
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).

I'm assuming that it has something to do with the value you set in system status...

That's only a guess.

cyberspirit, what did you do to get cPanel/WHM to email you about your server load?

The load on your server is too high for the stats to run.

The message suggests that stats stops when the load is too high, is that correct?
Yes that is correct.

The messages also mentions to change the extracpus value to a number larger than 0. But based on what?
You can set this in WHM > tweak settings.

From WHM:
The load average above the number of cpus at which logs file processing should be suspended (default 0):

Setting this to 0 on a one CPU system will cause stats to stop running if the load goes over 1.00. If you set this to 1 on a one CPU system the load will go to 2.00 before stats stop running.

But If it were me I would check to see why the load was so high. Fixing the load problem will solve this problem as well.

Let me refeer you to a post I made earlier today. I was experiencing high server and memory while I was testing some backend scripts on my box. After a while the memory and server load stablized. But there is a command that can help you, it has helped me.

Hope that helps.
