I'm having server crashes under a fairly light load, maybe 100 visitors active on a 300kb sized page. My server has 6 ghz CPU and 1880MB ram @ vps.net, so it should be able to handle much more.

I have gotten a few emails that say chkservd is hanging and causing the server to crash. Not sure if this is the cause, or what.

I'm on a LAMP centos 6 server using APC caching to run wordpress.

Here's the error:
The chkservd sub-process with pid 13050 ran for 778 seconds. This sub-process was terminated when it exceeded the time allowed between checks, which is 300 seconds. To determine why, you can check /var/log/chkservd.log and /usr/local/cpanel/logs/tailwatchd_log.

You likely received this notification as a symptom of a larger problem. If your server is experiencing a high load, we recommend investigating the cause. If you continue to receive this notification, it is likely that your system is unable to handle demand or a misconfiguration is delaying restarts.

If you are sure that no misconfigurations exist, you should consider gradually increasing the following options in WHM's "Tweak Settings" feature: "The number of times ChkServd will allow a previous check to complete before terminating the check" and/or "The number of seconds between ChkServd service checks".
Any help will be greatly appreciated. My website is really taking off and I need to be able to provide a consistent experience for my users.

Thanks! :]

Have you tried following the instructions in the email alert? In particular:

If you are sure that no misconfigurations exist, you should consider gradually increasing the following options in WHM's "Tweak Settings" feature: "The number of times ChkServd will allow a previous check to complete before terminating the check" and/or "The number of seconds between ChkServd service checks".

Thank you.
