dcpumon crashes the server every few hours

Over the last 3 days the server crashed about 8 times. The load average ends up well over 160. crond processes are at an all time hi when the server crashes: 150+
When I view the cron logs the only thing really running is:
*/5 * * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dcpumon >/dev/null 2>&1

I disabled this cron and for the first time in 3 days the server has stayed online for more than 4 hours and the load is back down to 1 or so. When I execute the command:
*/5 * * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dcpumon >/dev/null 2>&1
it hangs for a minute but then it finishes up without errors.

it appears to execute correctly and the output is sent to:
/var/log/dcpumon/toplog.x

Anyone have some info on what is causing this? For now I've just left the cron disabled and all is well.

I had to get a new server to resolve this issue. I had ev1servers setup a new box, I migrated the clients, and then I shutdown the old server. Ever since then there have been no problems - knock on wood
