I'm having problems on my servers, load goes out from 0.05 and goes to 125 to 185.

In the top processes appear some 40 applications:
/ opt / cpanel / ea-php56 / root / usr / bin / php-cgi

What can this be? is it some DDOS attack?
How can I block?

Vps Configuration:
500gb of hd
8 memory

Hello,

The following thread is a good place to start when troubleshooting high loads:

Troubleshooting high server loads on Linux servers

As far as the PHP-CGI process, check the Apache access log (/usr/local/apache/logs/access_log) or the domain access logs in /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ when this happens to see if you can narrow down which account is the culprit.

Thank you.
