    Hi,

    Load can be high due to number of reasons, mostly a site on your server been targeted. Paste the output of below 3 commands when the load is high.

    top c
    ps -auxf
    netstat -alntp

    This should help people on forums to track the exact problem.

    Thanks.

    In most cases, it does not have anything to do with the kernel when a load issue occurs. It could be due to one of your application is consuming high server resources. You have to troubleshoot and find what is causing this.
