    Go on, have a guess
    The only effective way that you're going to track down high server load is using the standard linux tools when it's actually happening. Monitoring software won't be of much help and is likely to only add to the problem.

    We actually use the http://www.hybodus.com/ VPS/Hosted solution ( http://hybodus.com/store/services ), it's $49.95 per month for up to 25 servers (which works out cheaper then Alertra) and can monitor practically every aspect of your server (Cpanel, SMTP, POP3, WWW, WHM, MySQL, Mail queue size, server load, number of MySQL queries) - so when you do have a problem (which we receive alerts from Hybodus via email and a WinApp), we can look into Hybodus and see what the various statuses were like shortly before the incident ("server load went high? ah - the mail queue had shot up to 2,000 and that caused eximstats to update MySQL which put everything under load"). Very useful tool IMHO. Admittedly, you could do it with Nagios, but that's fiddly.
