Hi all,

Over the past probably...... week..... I have two of my cPanel VPS servers running higher loads than normal and both are showing the below as the high user:
================================================================
/opt/alt/python27/bin/python2.7 /usr/share/lve-stats/lvestats-server.py --pidfile /var/run/lvestats.pid
================================================================

I've attached some screenshots for show, but is there anything I can do? There are no updates pending and it is running the lastest cPanel version. A reboot doesn't fix it either. I am at a loss on where else to look and what else I can do?

Any help? or pointers on what I should be looking into?

Thanks,
Cohen

Hello,

Here's a quote from our Daily Process Log document:

The Top Processes table shows the individual processes that consumed the most CPU that day. This table displays processes that have, at one time, used a large number of resources (top processes). Top process may only run for a few seconds, or for much longer. As a result, a top process may not actually consume a significant percentage of the resources on the server for a specified day.

Thus, while it may show as the top process, it might not be the reason for the high loads on your system. I recommend investigating to determine if you notice anything else resulting in high load averages. The following thread is a good place to start:

Troubleshooting high server loads on Linux servers

Thank you.

Thanks Michael,

I did take a look at the article and it didn't find much. I have been watching this for the past few days and it has been constant this process on both of my servers. If it was one VPS showing this, I would think it is just that server. However, it is both VPS'.

Here is some of the historical CPU usage:
