    I am geting the 2 following warning mail @ my mailbox

    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    This is cPanel cpuwatch on skol.revendominio.com.br!
    While processing, the cpu has been
    maxed out for more then a 6 hour period. The current load/uptime line on the server at the time of
    this email is
    14:19:13 up 4 days, 3:48, 0 users, load average: 5.17, 5.14, 4.88
    You should check the server to see why the load is so high and take
    steps to lower the load. If you want stats to continue to run even with a high load; Edit
    /var/cpanel/cpanel.config and change extracpus to a number larger then 0 (run
    /usr/local/cpanel/startup afterwards to pickup the changes).

    AND

    Those perl scripts are most likely killing your box. When top is running hit "c" to see the command line, it may help you figure out what they are
