    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
    8 cpus
    cloudlinux

    Traffic can be checked with netstat and apache status.

    If there is an attack, it can be blocked with csf.

    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.
