    Some user is causing great load on the server. Every minute or so httpd will jump up on TOP and be at like 100% cpu and the load will go up to like 5 - 10! How can I find out who is doing this? It says user 'nobody'

    Hi,

    Might be worth running 'top' on your system and watching what happens, it will show the highest load using process so you can formulate an idea what you need to do next.

    All the best.

    Is he getting allot of page hits? Maybe he is uses some very big cgi scripts or downloading huge files via http. There are lots of things that could cause apache to go really high :(

    Sorry.

    I mis-read what he said on his post.

    you could be right, best way is to check what files are being viewed each day and checking the web logs of the largest user.
