    Hello,

    In one of my servers I'm experiencing high server load (17-30 sometimes) while in normal state it's 0.2-0.6. When this happens, most of the times I see python in the top process. I'm sending a top from today's problem.


    Any ideas?:eek:

    You might have some clients with huge mailing lists! Track down the PID of the process and see who is using the resource.

    Hello,

    The process is under user mailman. How do I track down the offening mailing list? :(

    /usr/sbin/lsof -t -i:PID
    PID is the number of the process. I saw a thread discussing a huge problem with mailman and I suggest you search these forums.

    Hello,

    Then you might have the same problem with me.... Darren from cPanel gave me the above guidelines:


    All mailing lists displayed about 140-160 except one mailing list which displayed 202.000 (!!!!!) I removed that mailing list (the owner didn't know that, his webdeveloper created it but never used it) and the load went down to 0.2-0.7 as usual.


    Try it and see if you had the same problem as me!
