    Most of the time they are around 1 each but sometimes, now a bit longer they are much higher. How should I read this, is this for example a problem amount

    Load Averages: 7.72 7.23 6.45

    Or is it only 7% load. If I look at the processes and try to kill one it does not exist. Can I find why it is 700% higher now or should it be no problem to begin with?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    That would be 7 times the load as 7x1=7. Please see the following article on CPU load vs usage:

    understanding load averages

    Not to be rude, but if you do not understand load averages, I think you may find it difficult to determine the cause of the load. From SSH, you may use the `top' command to monitor processes:

    Alternatively, you could try WHM > Home »System Health »Process Manager. Ultimately,to determine the cause of load, you may need to ask your host for help or submit a ticket to cPanel.

    Thanks,

    I will recommend you to check /var/log/dcpumon folder. It will take the screenshot of top command every minute you can check that folder which domain/user is eating up server resources.
