Since a few days ago cpu usage is high just because of a system process located at /usr/sbin/atd. The load averages are most of the time at 15 - 21. top command is showing the high usage too. about 60% - 70% for system (sy).

Why atd is processor hungry?

I have already tried /scripts/fixeverything --force and upcp --force. CPanel version is 11.36.0 build 14.

Note that sites are working fine in this condition however mails are not received or delivered and mail queue is getting full of messages.

Your helps are appreciated.
