    Apache running wild boys! I had one user in his control panel supposedly using 96% CPU with 20 processes running cpaneld. Needless to say bloody Squirrelmail returned PAGE NOT FOUND and my server was hitting 1.9 load. Now if this is normal please inform me otherwise because this is just crap! How can one user be running 20 processes at 96% cpu useage while logged into his control panel on port 2082? Please explain the logic? My bloody machines is now swapping at 3% because of the memory exhaustion and i just REBOOTED YESTERDAY because of this same reason. 6% swapping after 90days+ uptime on a box that has over 1.5 gigs of memory? How can this be possible? So in other words it doesnt matter how much memory you have, when apache runs WILD it will uses all your memory till your box starts the swapping process and if you know anything about Apache this is taboo. My uptime is 1day 20hrs and my box is already swapping again. INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My users are complaining that they cant use their control panels, probably because of the above fiasco. So i did this

    I have see this happen on our server also but usually it lasts only a few seconds, it seems to be a common thing for loads when users check stats, login to cpanel and a few other functions, but a few seconds should not be a problem I would have thought.

    For how long are your loads climbing to those numbers?

    I only have a few sites on my server at the moment and my cpu used to almost never go over 0.2, but the last few days I've seen it going over 1 frequently and there are no new accounts yet. I checked by logging into cpanel while watching and it went almost to 1. Mine stays at that load for about a minute.

    Something changed. :confused:

    Mine last 20min. I even kicked the user out of their control panel. They logged back in and 10 - 20 processes running at once.
